Statistics

Careers, Placement and Outcomes

A statistician will often provide crucial guidance in determining what information is reliable and which predictions can be trusted. Statisticians often help search for clues to the solution of a scientific mystery and sometimes keep investigators from being misled by false impressions. Statisticians typically:

  • Analyze data in order to solve problems;
  • Apply mathematical and statistical knowledge in solving a problem;
  • Work as part of an interdisciplinary team;
  • Travel to consult with other professionals or attend conferences, seminars, and continuing education activities.

Statisticians are currently in high demand and the job as a statistician has been ranked as one of the top 10 jobs in the United States each of the last five years.
