Insurance Actuary

Actuaries analyze the financial costs of risk and uncertainty, using mathematics, statistics, and financial theory to assess the probability that an event will occur. They help clients develop policies that minimize the cost of that risk. Actuaries’ largely work in the insurance industry. Their median annual wage was $97,070 in 2015. – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Mathematicians conduct research to develop and understand mathematical principles. They also analyze data to help solve real-world problems. Employment for mathematicians is expected to grow 21 percent from 2014 to 2024. Businesses will need mathematicians to analyze an increasing volume of electronic data. Their median annual wage was $111,110 in 2015. – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Statisticians use statistical methods to collect and analyze data and to help solve real-world problems in business, engineering, healthcare, or other fields. About a third of statisticians work for the federal government or for scientific research and development companies. Although statisticians work mostly in offices, they may travel to collect data or to oversee a survey’s design or implementation. The median annual wage for statisticians was $80,110 in 2015. – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
