Abstract

Today's ideal statistical scientist develops and maintains a broad range of technical skills and personal qualities in four domains: (1) numeracy, in mathematics and numerical computing; (2) articulacy and people skills; (3) literacy, in technical writing and in programm,ing; and (4) graphicacy. Yet, many of these components are given short shrift in university statistics programs. Can even the best statistician today really be "completely sufficient?"
