Statistical Analyses

Statistical analyses at the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) support ongoing programs involving medical surveillance of workers and other populations, as well as occupational epidemiology and research. ORISE emphasizes insightful and accurate analysis, practical interpretation of results and clear, easily read reports.

All analyses are preceded by extensive data scrubbing and verification. ORISE’s approach relies on applying appropriate methods of statistical analysis to a variety of problems in occupational health and other areas. Our expertise spans a range of capabilities essential for statistical analyses, including:

  • Protocol preparation
  • Study design and resolution of startup issues
  • Power and sample size calculations
  • Descriptive data analysis concentrating on graphical presentations
  • Data modeling using generalized linear models and a wide variety of computer packages
  • Interpretation and presentation of study results
  • Investigation into research topics related to statistical analysis and occupational health
  • Questionnaire development and evaluation of questionnaire data
  • Evaluation of statistical data produced from epidemiologic information systems
  • Design, implementation, and evaluation of clinical surveillance programs

ORISE also performs special analyses of health conditions and specific groups of workers as required by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Headquarters. Specific projects include:
