Welcome to the Statistical Consulting Section

Statistical consulting is the most challenging and most rewarding part of statistics. A consultant uses the art and science of statistics to solve a practical problem. Problems come from many different fields, e.g. marketing, product design, manufacturing, medicine, agriculture, or genetics, but many of us specialize in just a few application areas. Some consultants work at universities or medical centers, some work in industry, and many run their own business. Good consulting requires a strong technical background in statistics, good people skills, and for many, a good business sense. In addition, modern statistical consulting often involves distance relationships with clients and distance technology. Other sections of the ASA help with the technical aspects of statistics. The statistical consulting section is here to help with everything else.
