About me

Jouni Kuha is a social statistician whose methodological research focuses on latent variable modelling, analysis of cross-national survey data, problems with measurement error and missing data, and other topics that are motivated by applications of statistics in the social sciences. He also collaborates with social scientists at the LSE and elsewhere on substantive research projects on a range of topics, such as the role of education in social class mobility, public attitudes to the police, fear of crime, immigrant fertility, frailty in older people, safety citizenship behaviour in organizations, ethnic diversity and social cohesion, and exit poll forecasting of election results.

Before joining the LSE, Jouni was a postdoctoral researcher at Nuffield College, Oxford, and Assistant Professor of Statistics at the Pennsylvania State University. He completed his MSocSc in Statistics at the University of Helsinki in 1992, and his PhD in Social Statistics at the University of Southampton in 1996.
