Statistics grads still on the rise, but not quickly enough - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

Data from the National Center for Education Statistics shows explosive growth in the number of statistics grads since the 1990s, but experts still don’t think the increase will meet the demand in the economy in coming years. Colleges and universities are launching new programs and expanding statistics offerings, including Brigham Young University, as well as the Universities of Michigan and California-Irvine, both of which have new data science degree programs. According to eCampus News, statisticians don’t always get along with those in other fields who work on big data, and few even agree on what data science encompasses, but the ASA has called for collaboration to meet the national demand.
