The Statistics program at University of Neuchâtel is offered as Statistics plays an important role in health fields, especially in epidemiology and medicine. In epidemiology, vaccination programs have been the subject of statistical studies. Here, the aim is to determine the population segments most susceptible to a disease, the rate of disease vector transmission, and many more!


In this sense, the field of statistics plays an important role as it helps us to sort out information, keeping only that which is essential to draw relevant conclusions.

The Statistics program at the University of Neuchâtel is taught by internationally recognized visiting professors and the faculty of the Institute of Statistics (ISTAT). Research interests include sampling, estimation, semi-/non-parametric methods, multivariate statistics, data mining and complex data analysis. ISTAT maintains constant and productive collaboration with the Swiss Federal Statistical Office. Public as well as private organizations engage the Institute for a range of different projects.
