Department of Statistics

 

Introduction

TOP

The subject of Statistics was first introduced at Government College Lahore in 1955 under the auspices of Ch. Sultan Buksh who was the Chairperson of the Department of Mathematics. In 1956, the Department of Mathematics was renamed as the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, under the Chairpersonship of Dr. Lal Muhammad Chawla, a prominent Educationist and Mathematician. The teaching of Statistics was limited to Degree classes in those days.

 

The Department of Statistics started working independently in 1964. Prof. Sher Muhammad Chaudhry was appointed as Chairperson. Under his guidance, the Department continued to progress and the Postgraduate Programme was launched in 1987. Mr. Abdul Sabur took over charge as Chairperson and served the Department from 1990 to 1998. Prof. Dr. Khalid Pervaiz recently retired as Professor having served the Department for more than 03 decades.

 

The Department has been organizing refresher courses for teachers of Statistics for many years. In 1986, a Summer School was also organized to train Postgraduate teachers in Statistics. The Department is also rendering invaluable services to the Directorate of Staff Development (DSD), the Pakistan Institute of Statistical Training and Research (PISTAR), the National Institute of Public Administration (NIPA), the Educational Management Education Information System (EMIS) and the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan.

 

The Department also imparts instructions to faculty members from other Departments such as the Departments of Botany, Computer Science, Economics, Management Studies, Physics, Psychology and Clinical Psychology. MPhil and PhD Programmes were launched at the Department in 1999.

 

Our mission is to develop market oriented teaching and research of Applied/Theoretical Statistics for the enhancement of Economy, Health, Industry and Agricultural sectors.

The Editorial Board comprises eminent educationists. Prominent scholars are regular subscribers to the Journal. The Journal is approved by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC).

 

Research Groups

 

Following research groups are actively working in the Department of Statistics:

  • Statistical Inference

  • Bio Statistics

  • Industrial Statistics

  • Time Series Analysis and Forecasting

  • Econometric Models

  • Probability Distributions

Statistics Society

 

The Statistics Society was established in 1987 to solve the problems of students and to encourage academic and co-curricular activities at the Department. The Society arranges Seminars on different topics by eminent professionals on a regular basis.

 

Statistics Laboratory

 

The department has set up its own well equipped Computer Lab divided into two sections. Latest Statistical Packages like SPSS, MATHEMATICA, E-VIEWS, STATISTICA, STATA, MINITAB and R-Language etc. are available in this Laboratory. A section of the Lab is reserved for MPhil and PhD students; the other is reserved for BSc (Hons) students.

 

Seminars, Lectures, Workshops

 

The Department of Statistics has always been regular in organizing research and learning activities. The Department has been organizing seminars of prominent Statisticians. Our participants include Prof. Dr. Kazim Khan (Kent State University, USA), Prof. Dr. A.Z. Memon, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Hanif Mian and Prof. Dr. G.R. Pasha. The Department also has the honour of successfully holding a National and an International Conference on Statistical Sciences with special reference to Survival Data Analysis.

 

Future Prospects

 

A Higher Degree in the subject of Statistics in the need of the day. Degree holders can join departments in the public and private sectors like Education, Provincial and Federal Bureau of Statistics, State Bank of Pakistan, Agriculture Census and the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), Medical Colleges and Hospitals as Bio-Statisticians, Marketing Research Organizations etc.

 

Academic Programmes

 

The Department of Statistics offers BSc (Hons.), MPhil and PhD Degree Programmes.
