I have recently finished statistics course and would like to know if statisticians really do what we covered in the course (usual college level stat course material). The course made me interested in statstician's work. But I have questions, that are not answered in simple "statistician's work description".
Does your job consist more of checking using t- and F-tests, etc.? Or is it closer to academic tyoe like trying to find the way to reduce bias, etc.? For example (dumb example), if you are testing accuracy of predictions are you considering going deep into assumptions made by the predictors (e.g. constant prices,etc.)?
Basically, if you are statistician, could you please share with me (us, at stackexchange) your work routine (I mean things one would not see in typical "statistician's work description")?
