Sports Statistician Salary


Most sports statisticians record and analyze the performances of athletes at the professional, college and secondary school levels. They might record how many yards a quarterback throws for during a football season, how often a baseball hitter gets on base, how many offensive rebounds a basketball player averages per game, or the first-serve percentage of a tennis player during a match. Some statisticians specialize in a particular area. For example, academic sports statisticians analyze data to look for trends. Some statisticians, called sabermetricians, develop and analyze complex performance metrics to more accurately assess a player's performance. Statisticians who record statistics at games are known as scorers or statistical recorders. Sports statisticians typically work irregular hours, which depend on the days and times of sports events. Many sports statisticians work part-time.

The average annual salary for sports statisticians was $36,000 in July 2014, according to the SimplyHired job site.
