Statistician is one of the fastest-growing jobs for the future | Statistics - Quartz

Data geeks, rejoice! There has never been a better time to be a statistician, says Dan Kopf, reporter for Quartz based in San Francisco.

Data: Bureau of Labor Statistics

Consider the 10 jobs that the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects to grow fastest from 2016 to 2026, shown in the chart below. This is based on a recently released report and only includes jobs that more than 20,000 people currently perform. For context, jobs overall are projected to grow by only 7.4% over this time period.

Two of these things are not like the others. Of the 10 jobs the BLS expects to grow the fastest in the next decade, only statistician and software application developer are not in the healthcare/elder-care industry...

Another occupation dealing with data—”Computer and information research scientist”—is expected to be one of the fastest growing in the coming decade, expanding by almost 20%. Statisticians and computer and informational research scientists make up a large share people who do the computational work often called “data science.”
