About us

Uppsala University appointed in 1910 the country's first chaired full professorship in statistics, the population statistician Gustav Sundbärg. Since then, a number of professors have passed by the department, with Professor Herman Wold and Professor Karl G. Jöreskog as international protagonists. The current research directions of the department are strongly associated with these two professors. The main research focus is on econometrics and time series analysis. Thereafter, psychometry.

Knowing some basic statistics is something most people can enjoy. "Statistical Thinking Will one day be as Necessary for efficient citizenship as the Ability to Read and Write" (HG Wells, 1895). The Department of Statistics is currently  teaching courses at several programs, and we also educate specialists and scientists in the field through teaching at undergraduate, graduate and PhD level.

We also conduct consultations primarily to researchers in other disciplines.
