Applied statistics is particularly concerned with describing sample data and using it to draw inferences about the underlying population. An applied statistics minor will be of interest to the cadet who finds analyzing data and solving real-world problems challenging, interesting, and satisfying. As most disciplines are more and more impacted by the use of data, the minor is also an opportunity to tie into the cutting-edge research in the major and prepare for future work in this field at the graduate level, where statistics is increasingly a requirement in many programs. Many exciting opportunities currently exist for officers to pursue an education in statistics at the graduate level and to apply the skills they acquire in such a program during their military service.
