Hello Dear Friend,
Welcome to CareerGuide smile
Thanks for approaching us with your query.

Statistics is a field where a person applies the theory,methodologies learned in the statistics on the numbers. Its one of the branch of Mathematics. It translates the Numbers Data to Graphical Data. Statistics is an interesting field in which one collects the information related to a particular thing . The subject involves the collection,analysis,interpretation,explanation and presentation of data.

The knowledge of Statistics is required in every field like Medical,Economics,IT,Health,Pharmacy,Business,Banking,Commerce,Finance,Education etc.
So one has a wide career options available. One can also work in the Public Sector and also in Private Sector.Statistician also have a very good scope in foreign countries.

In Public Sector one can apply for Indian Statistical Services (ISS), Subordinate Statistical Services (SSS). In India there are around 97 institutes under Indian Council of Agriculture (ICAR) and 45 Agricultural Universities requiring a huge human resource to work in Statistics.You can give exams of Agriculture Research Service (ARS). While other than this one can apply to Accenture,GE Capital,Genpact,Cognizant,American Express,HDFC,RBI,HSBC,HP,Indian Market Research Bureau and etc.

One can also work with UN Bodies like ICARDA,ICRISAT.

The working hours of a Statistician depends on in which sector you are working. If you are working in Public Sector than working hours are as per the Office timings i.e 10am - 6pm. While if you are working in Private sector than there are no specific timings with regards to the work. There are some of the Private companies that do ask the Statistician to work in Shifts.
So the work timings part completely depends on the sector which you have selected.

I hope you find this information useful and helpful.

Feel free to get in touch again.

Wish you Good Luck sunny

Thank You

Warm regards,
