What does a Statistical Analyst do?

Statistical analysts select, organize, assess, and present data relevant to their employer and use their analysis to help decision-makers with business strategy and make personnel decisions. When processing and collecting data, they set parameters for what is needed and the method of data collection, and the target number of participants. They sometimes manage lower-level employees who assist with data collection. When data is organized and cleaned, statistical analysts use software to perform the analysis process where they learn and make sense of the data.

Statistical analysts present their findings to decision-makers and stakeholders to explain the significance of the results in layman's terms, which involves creating statistical reports and data visualizations used during presentations to the decision-makers and stakeholders. Statistical analysts turn to mathematics and probability to understand the trends and patterns of a study and use numbers and probability to predict how to do things more efficiently. Statistical analysts need a bachelor's degree in mathematics, statistics, or related fields.
