CMIst (Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research)


The Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMIst) was launched in August 2014.

It combines the strengths of two existing research centres in the Social Sciences at the University of Manchester, the Cathie Marsh Centre for Census and Surveys Research and the Institute for Social Change.

CMIst will provide a focal point at The University of Manchester, for the application of quantitative methods in interdisciplinary social science research in order to generate a world class research environment.

The Institute builds on our existing strong reputation for quantitative social science and the development and application of advanced quantitative methods.

CMIst aims to be at the forefront, internationally, of quantitative social science research – encapsulating a wide range of topics and methods.

A distinctive feature of the Institute is the application of advanced and innovative methods, within an interdisciplinary framework, to address social, economic and political questions.
