Social statisticians develop and use the analytical tools that are vital in a thorough understanding of the social sciences. We work closely with economists and social policymakers, both within the University and beyond, on key issues facing society today.
Our activities are focused on the demographic issues surrounding health and wellbeing, sample survey theory and methods, and statistical modelling. Much of our work has an international perspective, as we collaborate with government and agencies around the world.
We offer an undergraduate degree, BSc Population and Geography, along with several postgraduate taught and research programmes. We also welcome enquiries from people interested in studying with us at PhD level.
