Miscellanea, Preparing Mathematical Statisticians for Statistical Agencies

Abstract:
The objective of this paper is to stimulate the academic community that is training mathematical statisticians. It presents the qualifications and skills sought in graduates from universities by a statistical agency, namely Statistics Canada. In major aspects, these have often not been met. In the light of their own experience, the authors put forward suggestions as to how universities might be able to assist in better preparing mathematical statisticians for statistical agencies.

Keywords:
Statistical training; university; government statisticians.
