Mathematics & Statistics Awareness Month: Careers in Statistics
April 24, 2017
One of the coolest things about statistics is the breadth and diversity of the career opportunities available to a professional with this skill set. From politics to animal care to clinical trials for pharmaceuticals, statistics has a place in essentially every career sector.
As we celebrate Mathematics & Statistics Awareness Month, we’re sharing insights from ASA’s recent survey of young professionals working in statistics or using their skills in other industries, and the responses have brought this truth to light with names and stories.
