Applied Statistics and Data Sciences Major Applied Statistics & Data Sciences Major Applied Statistics uses a variety of computational techniques and methods to visualize and explore data to establish the structure and underlying trends of that data, investigate relationships between observed phenomena, facilitate data interpretation, and aid in decision-making. Data Science expands on statistics to encompass the entire life cycle of data, from its specification, gathering, and cleaning through its management and analysis, to its use in making decisions and setting policy.
