Statistics is the science of making decisions under uncertainty. Vanward Statistics offers statistical services to businesses, doctoral students, the general public, and to researchers in various fields.
You get help in the modeling and analysis of count data; also fitting linear regression models, including logistic regression, log linear models, and time series models.
As well as statistical modeling, you can get descriptive statistics and data in a visual or summarized form.
