Statistician

Power

Statisticians are often behind major decisions in business, industry, healthcare, politics, and finance. From predicting future trends to analyzing past mistakes to documenting shifting public behavior, statistics gets its power from strategy, math, and psychology.

A good statistician understands that she has the power to influence important judgments and assessments in all areas of society. In statistics there is truth; in truth there is power.
