Educators | This is Statistics:
As an expert in statistics, you understand the value of an education in statistical science. Fortunately, more students are beginning to see the value, too. The number of students earning bachelor’s degrees in statistical science nearly doubled between 2009 and 2013, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. That’s great news, but it’s still not enough to fill the many jobs that require expertise in statistics.
A report by McKinsey Global Institute predicts the U.S. will need up to 190,000 new professionals with analytical skills to help manage the Big Data movement and run data analytics and business intelligence operations in the private and public sectors. And it’s not just big data that’s driving it—it’s many types of statistics jobs in all areas of the economy.
