The ASAM Group (Applied Statistics and Modelling) is part of the Department of Informatics at the University of Fribourg and offers courses in statistics, probability and applied econometrics.


The Group ASAM researches and expertise focus on various fields of applied statistics and econometrics. In survey statistics, we are regularly implied in projects such as the conception of survey designs, sampling, management of surveys and analyses of complex survey data. 


On the other hand, we have done works and studies on particular topics in data analyses, e.g. treatment of missing values, matching methods or treatment effect evaluation.


In our econometrics projects, our interest is in the hedonic regression methods and hedonic price indices, in the decomposition of wage differentials and in the analyses of wage discrimination.


The methods of fuzzy statistics are actually in the centre of our attention.
