Research in Statistics develops models and methods which make it possible to draw conclusions from empirical data riddled with random variation. The methods can be used for description, inference and prediction in most fields of scientific inquiry. The research in Statistics at Örebro University is focused on methods for analysis of observational data, in particular survey methodology, analysis of register data, time series analysis and econometrics with a strong Bayesian flavour.
