About

Social Statistics PhD students from The University of Manchester are supervised by at least two members of staff who are experts in their areas of research. Students have an outstanding array of potential training options available to them, including places on postgraduate course units and short courses.

Overview

The Social Statistics PhD programme at The University of Manchester is based in either the Social Statistics discipline area or in the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMIST): an inter-disciplinary research centre with a thriving research programme in Social Research Methods and Statistics.

Career opportunities

Typical first destinations at the end of the programme include lectureships, research posts, senior administrative positions in local government, NHS and educational institutions, homeworking and trade union and union linked positions.

There is increasing need for well trained social scientists who are able to apply advanced methods of analysis to complex data.

These skills are in short supply and graduates of the Social Research Methods and Statistics programme, in particular, leave in a good position to obtain jobs in the academic sector, in central government, including the Office for National Statistics, in local government and within the commercial research sector.

Programme Structure

Research themes include:

  • Census and survey methodology, 
  • Statistical methods in the analysis of social data, 
  • Social network analysis, 
  • Population studies, 
  • Ethnic and gender differences and employment and the labour market.
