Statisticians at RAND work across all RAND research areas, including health policy, labor and population, education and training, criminal and civil justice, national security, aging, and military manpower. These projects often pose novel challenges in design, sampling, measurement, analysis, modeling, imputation, and computing. Statisticians also have the opportunity to perform research in statistical methods and to provide statistical consulting and education to the RAND research community.
