Let’s celebrate World Statistics Day today with some interesting figures. In 2019, there were 93 000 mathematicians, actuaries and statisticians employed in the EU, representing 0.05% of total employment. This of course includes the statisticians who calculated this number…
Compared with 2005, their number increased by 59% from 58 400. During the period 2005 to 2019, the lowest point was reached in 2011 with 57 100 people employed. This was immediately followed by a large rebound in 2012 to 70 800 people.
Men accounted for a majority of these jobs (57%) in 2019. This has been the case since 2005, with the exception of 2009 and 2010, when women accounted for 51% and 52% respectively.
