Data and Statistical Analysis Support

Our experts work in various fields and several Swiss TPH units. Please fill out the request form and we will put you in touch with the most appropriate consultant. In addition, open office hours are offered in various fields (see below). The core teams providing support are:

We provide advice on

  • Study design, sampling and power calculation
  • Software tools for data collection
  • Scientific programming and software engineering
  • Geographic information systems (GIS)
  • Data management
  • Modelling and data analysis
  • Interpretation and presentation of results

Swiss TPH experts provide support in various areas relevant to health sciences, including study design, collection, management and analysis of quantitative, qualitative and geographic data.

This support is primarily offered to Swiss TPH staff. However, customers from the University of Basel, including MSc and PhD students, as well as external customers can also receive support, conditional on availability from our side.


This is a paid service. Swiss TPH customers benefit from a reduced rate of CHF 90 per hour and, whenever possible, are billed directly to the internal cost centre (KST) as defined by the customer. Prices for external and commercial customers follow a full-cost model. We also welcome enquiries that may result in extended scientific collaborations, which are discussed and planned on a case by case basis.

Only for members of Swiss TPH
