California State University, East Bay
Statistics B.S.

Statistics is the study of designing experiments and surveys, and evaluating the collected data. This rapidly growing science is widely used to make predictions about future events based on patterns observed in the past and to draw accurate inferences about large groups on the basis of a representative sample from the group. Economic forecasts and public opinion polls are examples of these kinds of statistical methods.

The methodology of statistics can be adapted to many types of problems. Due to the extensive development of computers and the collection of large databases, the need for statistical techniques has greatly expanded in the past few decades. A society like ours, which has become increasingly dependent on its data, has a growing need for statisticians.
