Decision Scientists


The U.S. Department of Labor (USDL) does not provide an employment outlook for decision scientists, but it does offer a prediction for the related career of operations research analysts, who use complex mathematical and analytical methods to help solve a variety of issues. Employment for operations research analysts is projected to increase 25 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. “As technology advances and companies seek efficiency and cost savings, demand for operations research analysis should continue to grow,” according to the USDL. “More companies are expected to employ operations research analysts to help them turn data into valuable information that managers can use in order to make better decisions in all aspects of their business.”
