Statistics provides tools vital for the collecting, analysing and presenting of data, but it involves much more than the organisation and display of data. Careful analysis of underlying questions and critical examination of the sources of data are part of the art of statistics, and modelling the variability in data to calculate the reliability of answers is part of its science.
Statisticians extensively use computers to do calculations, draw graphics, and bring new insights. With increasing use of technology, people with data handling skills and no fear of symbols have become highly sought after in the workplace. More and more professions, from the everyday to the exotic, depend on data and numerical reasoning.
Massey is ranked in the world’s top 200 universities for statistics, by the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking.
Jobs might not always be advertised specifically for a statistician, but very often the small print under a research officer advertisement will mention statistics or data analysis as a prime requirement. The ease with which computers capture data means that most organisations find they need someone able to organise and interpret it intelligently.
With knowledge of statistics employment can be found in a remarkably wide variety of areas:
