U.S. News: Analytics jobs rank among the best

U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of the 2017 Best JobsWhen it comes to the best business jobs, analytics- and operations research-oriented disciplines dominate the list, according to U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of the “2017 Best Jobs.” In order, the top five “best business jobs” listings include: 1. statistician
, 2. mathematician
, 3. financial advisor, 
4. actuary, and 
5. operations research analyst. Not sure how “financial advisor” snuck in there, but all of the others are closely associated with high-end analytics.

The rankings take into account the most important aspects of a job, including growth potential, work-life balance and salary.

While healthcare jobs dominate the top five “best jobs” and “best paying jobs,” analytics-oriented jobs more than held their own, led by statistician (No. 4) and mathematician (No. 20), which ranked among the top 20 overall jobs “in large part due to the explosion of data and use of advanced analytics to solve problems across sectors.”

“Almost every type of company is hiring people to collect, analyze and provide insights on data to improve their operations,” says Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer. “These roles – along with technology positions – are going to be important to almost any business in the future.”

To calculate its listings, U.S. News draws data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to identify jobs with the greatest hiring demand. Jobs are then scored using seven component measures: 10-year growth volume, 10-year growth percentage, median salary, employment rate, future job prospects, stress level and work-life balance.
