Significant Information: Statisticians




  • About 41 percent of statisticians work for Federal, State, and local governments; other employers include scientific research and development services and finance and insurance firms.
  • A master’s degree in statistics or mathematics is the minimum educational requirement for most jobs as a statistician.
  • Employment of statisticians is projected to grow more slowly than average because many jobs that require a degree in statistics will not carry the title “statistician.”
  • Individuals with a degree in statistics should have favorable job opportunities in a variety of disciplines.
