Actuaries held about 15,000 jobs in 2002, with more than 1 in 2
actuaries employed by insurance carriers. Others work for pension funds
and insurance agents and brokers. A growing number of actuaries work
for firms providing a variety of corporate services, especially
management and public relations, or for firms offering consulting
services. A relatively small number of actuaries are employed by
security and commodity brokers or by government agencies.
