Statisticians interpret and mediate statistical data, monitor trends and measure impact. Calculations and mathematical analyses are carried out to solve various types of problems, usually with the help of computer technology.
The term “data science” is often used for the use of statistics and machine learning to gain knowledge and solve problems based on large amounts of data from computer systems. There are many fields of specialization. In biology and medicine, for example, it is possible to analyze processes and work with statistics from measurements, and in the insurance sector, probability calculations are performed.
Statisticians can have a wide range of careers, for example in medicine, social sciences, industry, finance, public administration or in relation to research, both in public institutions and in the private sector.
