Statistics is the science of learning from data. The strategies and expertise of statisticians have become of growing relevance and significance in producing trustworthy data, and in analyzing and drawing practical conclusions from data. Statisticians can also provide crucial guidance in determining what information is reliable and which predictions can be trusted. One advantage of working in statistics is that we can combine our interest with almost any other field in science, technology, or business. Statistics graduates may find work in banking, accounting and other financial services, insurance and pensions, education or social research, civil service and health service, and numerous research councils and consultancies.
