It’s a Great Time to be a Statistician

The opportunities in the field of statistics have never been greater, and universities are adapting to the demand. In fact, the number of universities granting degrees in statistics has been growing rapidly since 2010.

In 2017, Glassdoor declared data scientist the top job for career prospects, base salary and overall job satisfaction, and U.S. News listed statistician among the top STEM jobs. And we’re just getting started—the opportunities for statisticians are projected to keep growing for years to come.
