About the Department

The Department of Statistics and Data Analysis is one of the divisions of the HSE University Faculty of Economic Sciences, which unites leading domestic and foreign specialists in the field of micro- and macroeconomic statistics, probability theory and mathematical statistics, actuarial mathematics, statistical and econometric methods of analysis and modeling of economic and social processes.

The Department of Statistics and Data Analysis is distinguished by:

  • The teaching concept, which complies with international standards, ensures the integration of science and the educational process in statistics and data analysis. It is designed to provide training for creative professionals with analytical thinking based on deep knowledge of economics, mathematics, statistics and computer technology.
  • High requirements in the learning process to the basic level of proficiency in probabilistic and mathematical-statistical methods are due to the fact that socio-economic phenomena and processes have a probabilistic nature and are characterized by a large number of diverse features.
  • The modern level of knowledge is ensured by the active participation of students in scientific seminars and conferences organized with the involvement of leading domestic and foreign specialists.
The staff of the department occupies a leading position in the country in probabilistic and statistical methods and their application in socio-economic research. A number of professors and associate professors of the department, who have many years of teaching experience at leading universities in France, Germany, the UK and the USA, transfer knowledge and competencies to students that meet the requirements of leading foreign and domestic universities, insurance and financial organizations.

Employees of the department publish in leading foreign and domestic journals every year, make reports at scientific conferences in European countries and the USA.

At the end of 2019, under the leadership of Doctor of Economics, Professor A.E. Surinov, the Center for Economic Measurements and Statistics was established. Currently, the Center employs 9 specialists - two chief researchers, three chief experts, one chief analyst and a manager. Two research interns from among HSE students were also selected and recruited.

In 2014, on the initiative of PhD, Professor Konakov V.D. and PhD Associate Professor Panov V.A., an International Laboratory of Stochastic Analysis and its applications was established, which brought together leading researchers from different countries (Germany, USA, France, Russia, Great Britain), different universities, but with similar research interests. The laboratory staff teaches key courses on probability theory and mathematical statistics at the university. 

At the initiative of Professor A.N. Ponomarenko, the International Institute of Statistical Education was established at the HSE in 2010 in order to improve the skills of employees of national statistical services, countries of the former USSR. At the moment, 900 employees of statistical services have improved their qualifications in it.

Cooperation with the Federal State Statistics Service, the former head of which, Doctor of Economics, Professor A.E. Surinov, is currently the head of our department, has a significant impact on the development of the department.

The department is a platform for students' achievements. Our team engages undergraduate and graduate students in creative cooperation, in the creation of an intellectual product in the form of joint publications and reports both in our country and abroad. So for many years in a row, the department annually organizes and holds an International scientific and Practical conference of students and postgraduates "Statistical Methods of Analysis of Economics and Society", where they report and publish the results of their research.

Key directions and tasks of the department's development are:

  • Building a strategy for the development of research and teaching activities based on modern probabilistic and statistical methods and their application in the analysis and modeling of socio-economic processes;
  • Ensuring a high scientific and methodological level of teaching in accordance with the standards of leading European research universities;
  • Development of joint academic and research programs with foreign universities;
  • Development of the Russian Association of Statisticians, consolidation of the contribution of the professional community of Russian statisticians to academic activity.
