Job Description for Statistical Analyst

A statistical analyst uses advanced mathematical techniques to analyze a set of data and draw conclusions. At the most basic level, a statistical analyst takes collected data and plots it before calculating a regression curve to describe the data set. Regression models may be useful for making future predictions, determining price points, and assessing seasonal trends. The statistical analyst also calculates the mean, median, mode, and standard distribution of the data set; once these values are calculated, a distribution curve can be created to describe the behavior of the system in question. Common distribution schemes include Gaussian, Poisson, and skewed distributions.
