  StatisticiansDescription: Statisticians collect information from surveys and experiments. They decide where and how to gather the information, who to survey, and what questions to ask. They use the information they collect to make predictions about the economy or to assess various social problems. This helps business and government leaders make decisions.Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2008-09 Edition at http://www.bls.gov/OCO/Complete Job Profile: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos045.htmSalary: \$50,001 or more per yearComments:Statisticians need calculus in college and must know all these topics to succeed in calculus. sormanic@member.ams.org christina sormani
