Statistics as an area of teaching/research was introduced at Stockholm College (as it was called then) in 1903, when Gustav Sundbärg was appointed Associate Professor. The Department of Statistics was founded around 1950. If you want to find out more about the history of the department, we recommend the book Faculty of Social Sciences 1964-2014.

The Department of Statistics has about 40 employees in total. We have three professors and a teaching staff consisting of about 15 full time positions.

Currently we have 10 Doctoral students. Each semester about 700 students register at our department at undergraduate and higher level.
