My principal research focus is on how philosophy of science supplements the understanding of the natural and social sciences, such as the discipline of economics, which one derives from scientific work itself.1 This includes the discipline of statistics.2 In addition, having worked as a government economist for over thirty years, my research extends to related interests in leadership and management.

2. 2. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) uses “one of many possible definitions of STEM,” university disciplines in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. BLS defines “Statistician” as a STEM occupation, from the 2018 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) manual, code 15-2041. The economist occupation, SOC 19-3010, is not listed as a STEM occupation but as a social science occupation. Depending on course requirements, some universities consider their economics major to be a STEM discipline.
