The best thing about being a statistician is that you get to play in everyone's backyard

Statistics is the science of learning from data and of measuring, controlling, and communicating uncertainty.

Statisticians apply statistical thinking and methods to a wide variety of scientific, social, and business endeavors in such areas as astronomy, biology, education, economics, engineering, genetics, marketing, medicine, psychology, public health, and sports. In fact, they provide crucial guidance for determining what information is reliable and which predictions can be trusted. They often help search for clues to the solution of a scientific mystery and sometimes keep investigators from being misled by false impressions.
