Exclude Mathematicians (A068).
Conduct research into mathematical theories and proofs that form the basis of the science of statistics. Develop statistical methodology. Examine theories, such as those of probability, to discover mathematical basis for new or improved methods of obtaining and evaluating numerical data. Develop and test experimental designs, sampling techniques, and analytical methods. Applied statisticians plan data collection and interpret numerical data from experiments, studies, surveys, and other sources and apply statistical methodology to provide information for research and analysis. May specialize in a specific aspect of statistics or industrial activity. Include Biometricians and Biostatisticians.
