  Statisticians
Statisticians contribute to scientific inquiry by applying their mathematical and statistical knowledge to the design of surveys and experiments; collection, processing, and analysis of data; and interpretation of the results.
Statisticians may apply their knowledge of statistical methods to a variety of subject areas, such as biology, economics, engineering, medicine, public health, psychology, marketing, education, and sports.
Statisticians also are employed in national defense agencies, determining the accuracy of new weapons and the likely effectiveness of defense strategies.

 AusStats : Welcome Speech to the 55th Session of the International Statistical Institute by Australian Statistician, Mr ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Before the war, the ISI had sought to influence governmental statistical agencies by facilitating collaboration and by encouraging uniformity in statistical definitions and data collection, but this role was largely taken over by the newly created United Nations.
Now the ISI took on a new mission, emphasising international communication among statisticians rather than with governments, and supporting the international promotion and dissemination of research on the theory and practice of statistics.
Professional conferences such as the ISI sessions are important for development of statistics and statisticians but they are not the only way we should develop our profession.

 Career interview: Medical statistician
He explains that in the development of new medicines, the first thing that happens is that researchers discover a particular molecule with chemical properties that suggest it might have a therapeutic effect.
Because there are so few patients involved, a statistician will have to use clever designs, which subsequently require a lot of technical analysis.
As part of our training as statisticians we had to produce all these tables and listings, which was bearable in Phase 1 because the trials weren't that big, but fortunately by the time I had gone to Phase 3 there were dedicated SAS programmers to do that sort of thing.

Pilla is one of the nation's most promising young scientists and one of the two statisticians to receive a five-year, $400,000 National Science Foundation Early Career Development Award to expand her ground-breaking research on mixture models and to integrate it into educational activities.
Much of her NSF funded work involves using mixture models, a method used by statisticians for more than 100 years.
Due to the explosion in the size and complexity of the data sets, current mixture modeling methods are hampered by inefficient estimation and limited inferential capabilities.

She interwove with her theology ideas taken from the Belgian statistician Adolphe Quetelet on probability and social behaviour.
It should not be forgotten that Florence Nightingale was ably supported by Dr William Farr, the pre-eminent medical statistician of the day, who helped her to refine the series of charts on which her reputation as a statistician is mainly built.
In the 1920s, the great statistician Karl Pearson reviewed Florence Nightingale’s correspondence on statistics and commented that a particular memorandum to Galton was still remarkably relevant and one of the finest Florence Nightingale ever wrote.

 Final decision on the IAOS young statistician competition 2005 prize - Population and Sustainable Development
In the classification of the papers received we could distinguish amongst three categories, namely papers that relate to the management of statistics systems, those that related to promotion of use of statistics and a third category that applied analytical and statistical techniques to illustrate application, utilisation and quality management of official statistics and systems.
I therefore conclude that Grissler is the overall winner.
The paper by Mika Gissler was presented at the beginning of the IAOS Forum to be held in Sydney on Friday, 8 April 2005 under title "Assessment of environmental health risks is feasible if data protection legislation allows for the secondary use of good quality health and administrative registers for research":

 iMedia Connection: The Marketer and The Statistician
As we finally enter the world of branded response, where every touch point with a consumer is understood as a step toward a deeper relationship with the brand, and as increased spend requires increased accountability, we'll see a delightful pas de deux of solid marketing instinct buttressed by rigorous analytics taking hold.
By sitting a marketer alongside a statistician and asking them "what's unexpected and how can we do this better" we can arrive at some counterintuitive insights that will improve our effectiveness.
The marketer and the statistician, working together, could rightly determine when to offer the Model-T ("any color, as long as it's fl") or the full panoply of choice for a given consumer based on data studies like the jelly conundrum.

This paper has shown some considerable improvement, though the tables are rather extensive and, perhaps inevitably, indigestible.
We are concerned with this paper and it must make it clear that with observational data of this type, the conclusions must be temepered with acknowledgement of bias and confounding that limit strong statements.

While there, he met and socialized with a number of members of the Japan Union of Scientists and Engineers (JUSE), Japan's most important quality control organization, founded in 1946.
One might reasonably wonder why so many senior business leaders turned up to hear an obscure Census Bureau statistician deliver a lecture on an esoteric, effectively untranslatable subject in a language that virtually none of them understood.
The answer is that both they, and Deming, had been invited by Ichiro Ishikawa, a wealthy industrialist who, in addition to being president of JUSE, had also served as the first president of Japan's Keidanren, the Federation of Economic Organizations (FEO).
