Our key themes
Research within the Cathie Marsh Institute is characterised by two overarching themes:
- Complex data
We focus on methodological and statistical development, often with a strong science social component. Our work is supported primarily by research groups within the Disciplinary Area of Social Statistics.
- Methods that make a difference
This theme focuses on population and social change, with the application of advanced quantitative methods to key social science questions.
