Summary

Programme description

The PhD in Social Statistics at The University of Manchester has a thriving and diverse research community.

Combined with Sociology, we had the highest proportion of research rated `world-leading' of any UK university by the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education. The REF 2014 also rated our research environment as one of the top two in the UK.

Our research themes include:

  • census and survey methodology;
  • statistical methods in the analysis of social data;
  • social network analysis;
  • latent variable modelling;
  • population studies and demographic methods;
  • global inequalities and international comparisons;
  • employment;
  • the labour market.

For example, recent PhD titles include:

`The Role of Privacy and Confidentiality in the Collection and Dissemination of Census and Survey Data'.
`Race and Population - a Statistical Demographic Approach'.

You will be supervised by at least two members of staff who are experts in their areas of research. You also have an array of potential training options available, including places on postgraduate course units and short courses.

Teaching and learning

You will join a diverse and vibrant community of doctoral students from nearly 100 different countries, all studying within the Faculty of Humanities.

You'll be assigned to a specific research grouping that complements your research interests and have access to a variety of interdisciplinary research institutes.

Our working environments are spacious and open-plan, giving you plenty of opportunities to communicate with colleagues and staff within the School, and you will have your own desk space as well as access to our fantastic range of libraries on campus.
