**Statistics**is the mathematical science involving the collection, analysis and interpretation of data. A number of specialties have evolved to apply statistical theory and methods to various disciplines. Certain topics have "statistical" in their name but relate to manipulations of probability distributions rather than to statistical analysis.**Actuarial science**is the discipline that applies mathematical and statistical methods to assess risk in the insurance and finance industries.**Astrostatistics**is the discipline that applies statistical analysis to the understanding of astronomical data.**Biostatistics**is a branch of biology that studies biological phenomena and observations by means of statistical analysis, and includes medical statistics.**Business analytics**is a rapidly developing business process that applies statistical methods to data sets (often very large) to develop new insights and understanding of business performance & opportunities**Chemometrics**is the science of relating measurements made on a chemical system or process to the state of the system via application of mathematical or statistical methods.**Demography**is the statistical study of all populations. It can be a very general science that can be applied to any kind of dynamic population, that is, one that changes over time or space.**Econometrics**is a branch of economics that applies statistical methods to the empirical study of economic theories and relationships.**Environmental statistics**is the application of statistical methods to environmental science. Weather, climate, air and water quality are included, as are studies of plant and animal populations.**Epidemiology**is the study of factors affecting the health and illness of populations, and serves as the foundation and logic of interventions made in the interest of public health and preventive medicine.**Geostatistics**is a branch of geography that deals with the analysis of data from disciplines such as petroleum geology, hydrogeology, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, geochemistry, geography.**Machine Learning****Operations research**(or Operational Research) is an interdisciplinary branch of applied mathematics and formal science that uses methods such as mathematical modeling, statistics, and algorithms to arrive at optimal or near optimal solutions to complex problems.**Population ecology**is a sub-field of ecology that deals with the dynamics of species populations and how these populations interact with the environment.**Psychometric**is the theory and technique of educational and psychological measurement of knowledge, abilities, attitudes, and personality traits.**Quality control**reviews the factors involved in manufacturing and production; it can make use of statistical sampling of product items to aid decisions in process control or in accepting deliveries.**Quantitative psychology**is the science of statistically explaining and changing mental processes and behaviors in humans.**Reliability Engineering**is the study of the ability of a system or component to perform its required functions under stated conditions for a specified period of time**Statistical finance**, an area of econophysics, is an empirical attempt to shift finance from its normative roots to a positivist framework using exemplars from statistical physics with an emphasis on emergent or collective properties of financial markets.**Statistical mechanics**is the application of probability theory, which includes mathematical tools for dealing with large populations, to the field of mechanics, which is concerned with the motion of particles or objects when subjected to a force.**Statistical physics**is one of the fundamental theories of physics, and uses methods of probability theory in solving physical problems.**Statistical Signal Processing.****Statistical thermodynamics**is the study of the microscopic behaviors of thermodynamic systems using probability theory and provides a molecular level interpretation of thermodynamic quantities such as work, heat, free energy, and entropy.

- http://www.wiley.com/bw/journal.asp?ref=0035-9254 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series C (Applied Statistics)
- QUOTE: The Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series C (Applied Statistics) is a journal of international repute for statisticians both inside and outside the academic world. The journal is concerned with papers which deal with novel solutions to real life statistical problems by adapting or developing methodology, or by demonstrating the proper application of new or existing statistical methods to them. At their heart therefore the papers in the journal are motivated by examples and statistical data of all kinds. The subject-matter covers the whole range of inter-disciplinary fields, e.g. applications in agriculture, genetics, industry, medicine and the physical sciences, and papers on design issues (e.g. in relation to experiments, surveys or observational studies).
A deep understanding of statistical methodology is not necessary to appreciate the content. Although papers describing developments in statistical computing driven by practical examples are within its scope, the journal is not concerned with simply numerical illustrations or simulation studies. The emphasis of Series C is on case-studies of statistical analyses in practice.

- Journal of Applied Statistics provides a forum for communication between both applied statisticians and users of applied statistical techniques across a wide range of disciplines. These areas include business, computing, economics, ecology, education, management, medicine, operational research and sociology, but papers from other areas are also considered. The editorial policy is to publish rigorous but clear and accessible papers on applied techniques. Purely theoretical papers are avoided but those on theoretical developments which clearly demonstrate significant applied potential are welcomed. Each paper is submitted to at least two independent referees. Each issue aims for a balance of methodological innovation, thorough evaluation of existing techniques, case studies, speculative articles, book reviews and letters.
