Graduate - Division of Economics - Department of Statistics



The need for data analysis has dramatically increased in recent years as the phenomenal growth of computer technology and communication networks has set off an explosion of information in our society. Statistics is about the general methods for analyzing numerical information. The main aim of this department is to train professional statisticians who investigate the mathematical foundations of statistical methods. It also helps students in other fields to master the basic tools of statistics and econometrics and enables them to conduct empirically orientated research.
