Centre for Population
and Applied Statistics
The Center for Population and Applied Statistics (CPAS) was formed as a result of deliberations by the Board of Studies for the then Institute of Statistics and Applied Economics (ISAE), Makerere University, which came into being in 1969 as a regional project. The Center came into full force when the Institute of Statistics and Applied Economics (ISAE), following the restructuring of Makerere University and devolution into colleges, transformed into the present day School of Statistics and Planning that would hitherto fall under the College of Business and Management Sciences. The Center was thus empowered into full operation as a business arm of the College of Business and Management Sciences (CoBAMS) to remain consistent in implementing its regional mandates and strategies.
