It’s easy to mislead people with bad use of statistics. While statistics is a complex field of mathematics, it’s also a field that happens to be lucrative and in demand.

Some of the things you may do in a typical day include:

You need a bachelor’s degree in math, statistics, or a related field in order to get a job in statistics; if you want to work in academia or research, you’ll need an advanced degree.

Top employers for statisticians include state and federal government (often under the title Mathematical Statistician at the federal level), higher education institutions, as well as scientific research, pharmaceutical, and insurance companies.
