Information for Employers and Contractors
The prime objective of the Accredited Statistician (AStat) scheme is to indicate to the non-statistical community that the holder has achieved an acceptable level of professional competence in the understanding and application of statistical methods and is bound by the Code of Conduct of the SSAI. It is important to the reputation of the statistical profession and to those employing statisticians that only those persons who satisfy the specified criteria are accredited, otherwise the credibility of the profession is at risk. A member with the qualification of Accredited Statistician may use the abbreviation AStat.
