goals

The Master's Degree in Official Statistics and Social and Economic Indicators focuses on the training of students who wish to work in the context of official statistics or similar fields (National Statistics Institute, Eurostat and public or private institutions for which official statistics is a central resource). This is a proposal that is part of the network of European Masters in Official Statistics (EMOS) * and, given its interdisciplinary nature, is aimed at students, professionals or researchers with statistical, mathematical and / or Social Sciences training.

* The European Union, through the European Statistical Agency (Eurostat) and the network "European Masters in Official Statistics" (EMOS), are betting on homogeneous and high-level training in official statistics. To achieve this goal, an advanced training context is being generated to prepare social scientists and statisticians to meet the challenges facing official statistics in the coming years. It is about promoting a homogenized European training that not only generates high levels of technical quality, but also respects the ethical criteria necessary to carry out work with such a high level of responsibility.
