Introduction

Statistics is a subject of applied science based on quantitative decision-making. In the Department of Statistics, students are educated to amass data and analyze the development of computing. Korea is striving to develop application-studies in the field of ICT. As demands on quantitative data are, statistics is expected to take on an important role. In response to this, decision-making based on experience and intuition will become obsolete. In the Department of Statistics, data is divided into two sectors-the private sector and the public sector. In the private sector, it has a limit in terms of access to data. The public sector places value on public data with respect to high reliability and long-term accumulation. In National Statistics, the subjects deal with a wide array of factors such as economy, industry, society, and environment. This major educates students to analyze data, decision-making based on statistics, and data acquisition for the purpose of fostering professionals dealing with both national and private statistics. It also aims to cultivate students who can interpret economic issues.

Big Data Science nurtures Data Scientists who have the capability to deal with both national statistics and private statistics with the mission of solving data-related problems. Public officers who can work with statistics are selected differently in examinations compared with other officers as they are required to study more than simply statistics and economics.
