Data scientist surpasses statistician on Google Trends

Posted to Statistics  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

The relative interest in data scientist surpassed statistician this month. It was also higher in April and September of this year, so it’s not new, but it does seem like it’s ready to be a consistent thing, at least least for a little while. That said, it doesn’t seem like statistician is losing interest to data scientist, as the former has been fairly consistent for the past few years, so take that how you want.
