The Academic Data Centre is here to help faculty, staff and students at the University of Windsor access and use statistical and geospatial data. We are located in room 1104, Leddy Library (next to the Cafe). Walk-in support and consulting is available during our open hours, or email for an appointment.
We help students, faculty and staff use statistical/data software (including SPSS, Stata, SAS, R, ArcGIS and NVivo), use and interpret statistical methods and procedures, create graphs and maps, and find sources of statistics and data. We also support survey development and data management and work with faculty to help incorporate data into their classes. Read more on our services page.
