Hi Hermon: Mathematicians and Statisticians analyze data and apply mathematical and statistical techniques to help solve real-world problems in business, engineering, healthcare, or other fields. They work in many fields, such as education, marketing, psychology, sports, or any other field that requires the collection and analysis of data.

Duties typically performed:

*Develop new mathematical rules, theories, and concepts in areas such as algebra and geometry

*Decide what data are needed to answer specific questions or problems

*Apply mathematical theories and techniques to solve practical problems in business, engineering, the sciences, and other fields

*Design surveys, experiments, or opinion polls to collect data 

*Develop mathematical or statistical models to analyze data

*Interpret data and report conclusions drawn from their analyses

*Use data analysis to support and improve business decisions

How to become a Mathematician or Statistician:

Mathematicians and Statisticians typically need at least a master’s degree in mathematics or statistics. However, some positions are available to those with a bachelor’s degree.
