Journal Description

Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research started in 2005 with the aim to promote and share scientific developments in the subject of statistics and its allied fields. Initially, PJSOR was a bi-annually double-blinded peer-reviewed publication containing articles about Statistics, Data Analysis, Teaching Methods, Operational Research, Actuarial Statistics, and application of statistical methods in a variety of disciplines.
