Quantitative Lab


We don't actually have a lab room devoted to quantitative research. However, we do have an optical scanner (NCS OpScan 3) and software to run it, as well as use of the University's scanning services.

We also have free access to very powerful statistical software. SAS was developed in NC State's Statistics Department and is now the largest privately-owned software company in the world. Through a special licensing arrangement, NC State faculty can download their own copies of many of the products SAS markets.

Of course, we also have access to common spreadsheets as well as people to help with their use. A full collection of quantitative analysis books is available in our lending library.
