Course content

Social Statistics is a new discipline area, set up as part of the commitment by the University of Manchester to develop Social Statistics as a key component of its School of Social Sciences. All academic staff from the Centre for Census and Survey Research are formally located within this discipline.

Our research, along with colleagues in Sociology, was rated joint first in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, with the highest proportion of research judged to be "world leading" of any UK higher education institution.

The University of Manchester has a long tradition of world leading research and innovation in social science and is home to methods@manchester ( http://www.methods.manchester.ac.uk/)
