About the School
The School of Statistics was established in 1953 as the Statistical Training Center, then later as Statistical Center under a bilateral agreement between the Government of the Philippines and the United Nations. Its primary objective then was to work towards the improvement of statistical services in government. Ten years later, the Center was formally turned over to the University of the Philippines in 1964, the U.P. Board of Regents approved the Bachelor of Science (Statistics) program of the Center. The B.S. (Statistics) program was implemented beginning AY 1967-1968.
In 1998, the Statistical Center changed its name to School of Statistics in order to reflect its expanded character of a degree-granting institution. At present, the School of Statistics offers one undergraduate program and three graduate programs. These are B.S. (Statistics) program, the Master of Science (MOS) program, M.S. (Statistics) program and the Ph.D. (Statistics) program. Through these programs, the School of Statistics has produced numerous distinguished statisticians in various profession and is widely recognized as the primary source of statistical expertise for the Philippine Statistical System and Industry.
