Statistics: a job for professionals

Published in 2002, SSA's publication "Statistics: a job for professionals" was compiled to highlight that Statistics is a complex and delicate field requiring both high level training and experience. An aptitude for figures, or the ability to turn on a computer, just isn’t enough. Statistics is a job for professionals!

The purpose of this publication is to make this point through some serious and not-so-serious success and disaster stories ... in the hope that the next time you have to make significant decisions based on data, you'll seek appropriate assistance. Consulting a professionally accredited statistician will help you make cost-effective use of your data and provide you with the assurance that your decisions will be soundly based.

The Statistical Society of Australia operates the only professional accreditation program for statisticians in Australia. Click here to find a contact list of Accredited Statisticians.
