The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) website contains advice for those of school age (11-16) who are considering a career in statistics. This includes answers to the questions:

  • “What is statistics?”, “What do statisticians do?”
  • “How do I develop my statistics knowledge at school?”
  • “What are the next steps?”.
