About a Career in Statistics

Investopedia reports that statistics is concerned with “the collection, description, analysis, and inference of conclusions from quantitative data”. If you are ready to unlock the power of data and gain a competitive advantage in your career, this online statistics course is a great place to start.

Statistics is more important than ever in today’s world, as we are constantly generating and analyzing large amounts of data across a wide range of fields. From healthcare and finance to sports and entertainment, data is everywhere. Being able to make sense of it is critical to making informed decisions and progress.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, statisticians typically decide what data is needed to answer specific questions and solve problems, apply mathematical theories to solve problems in several fields, develop tools to collect data, and communicate data and analysis to technical and non-technical audiences.

Statisticians are well paid for their important work, with a median annual salary of $96,280, or over $45 per hour, with the highest 10 percent earning more than $169,500.

Industries with the highest level of employment for statisticians include: government; research and development in the physical, engineering and life sciences; education; and healthcare.

This is a career that requires higher education. While some entry-level positions may be available to those with a bachelor’s degree, statisticians typically need at least a master’s degree in statistics.

Before investing years of time and thousands of dollars in advanced degrees, an introductory course such as this can give you the opportunity to learn core concepts and gain insight into the field of statistics to help you decide if this is a career you want to pursue.

For every student who takes this statistics course from IAP Career College, we make a donation to textbook publisher OpenStax, part of Rice University, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

If IAP Career College has the course that you are looking to take, take it. I hesitated between several career colleges prior and choosing IAP was the best decision I had made.
