Statistical and Formal Theory Consulting

The Program for Quantitative and Analytical Political Science offers a consulting service to assist faculty members and students in the social sciences and humanities at Princeton University who use statistics or formal theory in their research. Members of this consulting service are there to provide you (or your research assistants) with quick help and advice on problems relating to statistical analysis or formal theory.

Most of our clients are affiliated with Politics, the Woodrow Wilson School, and Sociology. If you are not affiliated with these departments, you should still feel free to send an email to us at and we will see how we can help.

Past Clients

During our first six years, (Academic Years 2012-2017), we have provided consulting services to undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and faculty in the Politics department, the Woodrow Wilson School, the Sociology department, the Economics department, the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department, and to Operations Research and Financial Engineering. The duration of consulting sessions can range from just a couple of minutes to over an hour, depending on the client's needs.

We offer reserved appointments during these office-hours, and special arrangements scheduled at the convenience of the client and consultant. Our consultants can offer assistance on a host of topics from scraping the web to complex derivations.
