Statisticians

Outlook

Employment for statisticians is expected to grow by 31 percent, much faster than the average for all careers, through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). We live in a world of data these days as a result of Internet searching and the use of social media, smartphones, and other mobile devices. Businesses and nonprofit organizations will increasingly need statisticians to organize, analyze, and sort this data. This growth will be due to more widespread use of statistical analysis to make informed business, health care, and policy decisions. Most recently, the coronavirus pandemic has affected all areas of life in the U.S. and throughout the world. Statisticians are in high demand to provide statistical analysis of public health, health care, the economy, policy decisions, and other topics related to the pandemic.
