Complex statistical problems arise in almost all types of research, and advanced statistical methodologies are widely used. The Statistics programme is offered by the University of Copenhagen.
In practice, statistics is a combination of three different disciplines:
- Probability theory, which is the field of mathematics that describes uncertainty.
- Theoretical statistics, which comprises philosophical considerations about how best to translate between mathematics and reality.
- Practical data processing, which is an area of applied computer science.
- You will often also need to acquire significant insights into the field which the study in question deals with.
There is high demand for statisticians and there is zero unemployment. Statisticians find jobs in, for instance:
- The pharmaceutical industry
- The public health insurance sector
- The financial sector
- Agricultural research
Some statisticians are employed at universities as scientists or teachers. This requires you to get a PhD. Others work as consultants or as private entrepreneurs.
