Eystein Skjerve: June 10 2015. Support from the EpiCentre. We have now had some communication with the 4 Adamstua department heads on how to organsise support systems and training in statistical design and analyses. As I understand the depertment heads, most of them believe that support can now be obtained from the Ås Campus. This may be real for some projects, but is, sorry to say, a view that is not rooted in the reality. Anyway - this must for me mean that our leaders say that if you need help, your Department head can take care of this, including paying the necessary costs. If not, we will still be willing to give some help, but please then inform your Department head on this to make them more informed on this issue.
Eystein Skjerve: June 10 2015. Stata A new verion of Stata (14) is now available for download form As before the cost is 2000/ user. So far the software has not been paid by NMBU, but by the EpiCentre. Our IT department works on this now, but so far you will b einvoiced after downloading from webpush. We recommend Stata for use in obsevational studies, while JMP or MiniTab are good examples for experimental studies.
