Welcome to the Department of Statistics
Statistics is a dynamic discipline that aims at the development and application of methodologies for inference and data analysis for science, medicine, business and society. A current challenge facing the field is Big Data and the exponential growth of data being generated worldwide that await analysis. A consequence is that the demand for skilled statisticians has been steadily rising. Statistics uses tools from mathematics, probability and computing to develop specific statistical approaches for prediction, classification, learning, estimation and hypothesis testing. UC Davis Statistics faculty pursue vigorous research programs at the forefront of current developments and engage in a large array of interdisciplinary collaborations. Department faculty are committed to provide students with excellent training and a broad education in Statistics.
