Statistics is the science of decision making in the realm of uncertainty. Therefore, it is the scientific application of mathematical principles to the collection, analysis, and presentation of numerical data.
Statisticians contribute to scientific enquiry by applying their mathematical knowledge to the design of surveys and experiments; the collection, processing, and analysis of data; and the interpretation of the results.
Statisticians can apply their knowledge of statistical methods to variety of subject areas including sciences, technology, social sciences, management and administration, engineering, health sciences, public health, education, humanities, sports, and all areas of human endeavours.
