Statistician in US top 10 'best' jobs Empty Statistician in US top 10 'best' jobs

Further evidence of the value of statisticans' skills in the job market comes from a survey which includes actuary, mathematician and statistician in the top 10 best jobs in the US.

Each year wwww.careercast.com ranks hundreds of jobs on the basis of five criteria – stress, working environment, physical demands, income and employment outlook. The results of this year's survey were widely reported by publications including the WSJ.

Careercast.com's researchers "sought to find careers that are likely to provide a positive experience for a majority of employees, not just the uniquely talented".

Actuary (described as "interprets statistics to determine probabilities of accidents, sickness, and death, and loss of property from theft and natural disasters") was the top rated job. The job ranked well overall, and in particular for its low physical demands and stress levels and very good employment prospects.

Software engineer ranked second, computer systems analyst third, and mathematician sixth. Coming in eighth, the statistician's job rated very similarly to actuary for physical demands, but worse for stress, and significantly worse for salary and employment prospects.

There is no obvious equivalent survey in the UK. But the top ten most popular careers for 2010 published by careers website www.alec.co.uk rates data communications analyst, marketing officer and software engineer its top three. Statistician isn't in the top ten.

The site also lists "graduate openings that currently offer most new jobs". That list includes accountants and auditors, applications software engineers, computer systems analysts, secondary school teachers and systems engineers, but not statisticians.

The November 2009 ONS Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings top 50 is headed by corporate managers and senior officials with an average annual salary £85,943, followed by medical practitioners on £78,366. Actuaries, economists and statisticians come in 31st with an average salary of £40,808.
