Statistical Analysis & Data Science

Big data alone can’t answer any questions. But when coupled with data analytics and applied statistics, the tools of data science, it can help solve real-world problems. Westat takes big data and addresses the gaps by supplementing it with survey data, adding new measures and analyses to uncover patterns, assess limitations, and predict relationships that inform clients and provide valuable insight to research questions. Westat provides the data analysis techniques and tools to drill down, explore, track, and uncover the meaning and value behind data.
