About

The Survey Statistics programme of University of Trier focuses on modern applied methods of statistics. Due to the Economic and Social Statistics Department’s main research priorities, a special emphasis is put on computational survey statistics. Thereby, the programme mainly caters to the ever evolving demands in the fields of institutional and official statistics.

Overview

During the Survey Statistics programme of University of Trier students can get insights into actual statistical research through the Research Institute for Official and Survey Statistics (RIFOSS) located at Trier University.

As the need for evidence-based policies, and consequently for sound complex data analyses, rises, the need for well-trained applied statisticians increases as well. Through its structure, the master programme ensures that students are not only trained in statistics but also get insights into subject matters like economics, social sciences, etc., creating a multidisciplinary environment. Graduates are thus able to fine-tune their profile to their desired future line of work. This ability is further enhanced by a collaboration with the University of Bamberg and Freie Universität Berlin that ensures a broad spectrum of lectures from which students may choose.
