The Statistics Service Unit

Apart from its teaching functions, the department runs a Statistics Service Unit (SSU) to cater to the statistical needs of academic staff and students of the University and of the society at large. This is a unique service activity which has been greatly appreciated by its beneficiaries that include Government organizations, and NGO’s, Banks and several Research institutions in Botswana.

Statistical techniques are widely used for data collection and analysis in research across the spectrum of disciplines. The rapid growth in Information Technology has made these techniques more easily accessible through software packages. It is always important that the statistical input into the research process is factored in as early as possible rather than as post-mortem tactic following the collection of the required research data. To this end the department is pro-active in providing advisory and computing services through the Statistical Service Unit. Staff also undertake consultancy work on their own or through the Statistical Service Unit
