Useful information for young statisticians
Young statisticians are encouraged to join the NZSA and the first year of membership is free to senior students enrolled at New Zealand universities, or who are graduates of NZ universities studying overseas, and not in full-time employment.
Normally some funding is available to enable young statisticians to travel to NZSA conferences. Details are circulated with conference registration material. Special dinners for young statisticians are becoming a feature of our conferences.
Careers in Statistics
The University of Auckland’s Statistic Department has produced a series of posters showing where statistics graduates can end up working. There’s some fascinating stories – from astrostatistics to sports statistics, from research wind energy to insurance.
