Abstract

This interdisciplinary team developed a promotional strategy for the National Education Services Unit of the Australia Bureau of Statistics. Through extensive background research and with the feedback from interviews the group established the existence of a problem with an insufficient number of qualified statisticians in Australia's job market. This strategy recommends brochures, school visits, work experience, and training for math teachers to help raise the awareness and profile of careers in statistics for students, teachers, and parents.
