The increase in routine clinical data collection coupled with an expectation to exploit this in support of evidence based decision making creates the requirement for a system to support clinicians in this analysis. This paper looks at applying argumentation to this problem, by collating all the relevant statistical approaches and their assumptions into a statistical knowledge base and then representing the model selection process through argumentation. This will form the foundation for the development of a prototype that will enable clinicians to answer their research questions with no statistics, informatics or administrative support.
