Statistics for Sustainable Development > About Us
We are a not-for-profit, social enterprise providing:
- Statistical and data management expertise;
- Support on research designs and methodology;
- Technical guidance related to collection and processing of data and information.
We work with teams across the world, providing our services to a global community of people working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our first annual report (2018) gives a full overview of our organisation and the type of work we do.
As a small company, we have adopted a flat structure with senior staff members forming the board of directors to make non-technical decisions.
When we start a new project, we appoint an overall project leader and form a team to address the needs of the work. These teams vary in size depending on client requirements and the specific areas of expertise requried. These teams are typically very flexible. While many projects may only involve one or two members of staff, we can mobilise our full team quickly when needed to respond to an urgent request.
We have established a strategic partnership with the Southampton Statistics Science Research Institute (S3RI) of the University of Southampton - one of the strongest groups of academic statisticians in the UK.
We have also developed long-term partnerships with organisations with whom we share values and interests, including:
As a team of technicians and statisticians, we believe that our best work is done when supporting organisations that share our vision of a more sustainable future for all.
We are always looking for potential collaboration opportunities with research, humanitarian and technical groups working in these sectors - please contact us if you are interested in discussing a potential partnership.
We have a selection of case studies highlighting some of the work we do with our partners. Visit our blog for more information about our thinking, projects and our ways of working.
