MULAT 2021: “SustainAbility: Highlighting the Role of Environment Statistics in Building our Country’s Future”

For 40 years, the UPLB Statistical Society (STATS), a duly recognized academic organization in the University of the Philippines Los Baños, has committed itself to the pursuit of academic and professional excellence. The organization continues to work towards its goal of advancing and promoting proper application of statistics in all fields of learning endeavors. Though an academic organization, UPLB STATS does not set its limit in developing academic excellence among its members but also in promoting awareness among the youth nationwide. In recognition of its outstanding efforts and exemplary dedication to the successful conduct of various statistical advocacy activities for the youth, UPLB STATS was awarded as the Best Youth Advocate for Statistics during the 27th  and 28th National Statistics Month.


ESTADISTIKA is an annual, invitational statistics quiz, poster-making, essay- writing, and photo contest. However, due to the pandemic, the organization opted to re-invent the said activity and make an ESTADISTIKA Special Edition—with the same aim to introduce the proper application of statistics in various disciplines, and to promote intellectual growth in statistics nationwide.
