Division of Biostatistics


The Division of Biostatistics suggests Excel for simple data entry and analysis. For large or complex studies, a database (e.g., Microsoft Access, REDCap) may be necessary for efficient data entry and data management. The Division provides consultation and support for the setup and use of such databases.

The Biostatistics faculty and staff typically use R, SAS, Stata, and other more specialized software packages for data analyses (currently, we do not use nor support SYSTAT or SPSS). However, those are not recommended for casual users.

Some of the data management and statistical packages may be obtained under Jefferson's site licenses. Members of the TJU community can contact the University's Customer Support Center at 215-503-6000.

NOTE: The Division of Biostatistics does not provide technical support for these or any other software packages.
