Resources for Visitors

The Social Science Computing Cooperative supports researchers at UW-Madison who use statistical analysis in their work. We provide a complete research computing environment focused on statistics plus the expert help needed to use it. Some SSCC services are available only to those affiliated with the SSCC's member agencies, but others are available to the broader campus community.

SSCC training classes are available to anyone in the UW community, though there is a charge for those who are not members. Topics include statistical software and other research tools.

The SSCC Knowledge Base is available to anyone. Some articles explain how to use SSCC resources, like email or Condor. Others discuss statistical software, including general introductions to Stata and SPSS and guides to specific topics like bootstrapping in Stata.

The SSCC also supports University classes in the Social Science Division. Our resources for instruction include a computer classroom and computer labs with statistical software installed, access to Winstat for running statistical software from home, and staff assistance for both instructors and students. Graduate students in the Social Science division can also be given lab accounts for their research work.
