Biography

Bernard Baffour completed his PhD in social statistics from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, where he investigated the statistical properties of triple system capture-recapture estimators in population censuses, and subsequently undertook a post-doctoral fellowship examining the relationship between weather and health, through quantifying the impact drops in temperature had on hospital admissions. 

Prior to joining the School of Demography at the ANU in 2017, he was a research fellow in social statistics at the Institute for Social Science Research at the University of Queensland from 2012 where he contributed to consultancy projects and provided methodological support to a wide range of social scientists, while developing a research focus in survey research and official statistics. Bernard has methodological expertise in survey methods and the analysis of complex data. He has a diverse range of experience in working across a wide spectrum of areas from education, sociology, epidemiology, demography and operational research.
