Being a Data Analyst in order to make a living doesn't worth the ride but developing long time career path will enable you achieve your goal. By just making a living from this field will only limit your knowledge (restricted to making a living) but building a career path in this field will motivate you to put in your all. What I am saying is that: Data analyst as an educator isn't enough, you will need to expand to other fields like Management, Marketing, Finance, Economics and other related field of interest.
Will expanding to other fields ruin your primary objective?
The answer is NO.
Expanding your horizon does not mean you will be deviated from the primary objective which is being a Data Analyst. There are areas within the aforemention fields that require data presentation, analysis and interpretation. SPSS, Eviews, EXCEL, STATA, etc. combined with Report, Proposal, Thesis and Executive Summary writing will definitely 'buy' you a living.
This could be achieved one step at a time, that is, have your focus on a particular area as a starting, build and deeply absorb yourself in it. Then, associate with the right people (management, HODs, Lecturers, staffs, Researchers, Analysts, employees, students, etc.) who can lead you to where your customer base can be found. Ensure you carry out some PERSONAL problem-solving research ranging from academic institution to organization and society at large. As a result, you will be building your own 'library' (knowledge and experience in a specific field) and to show-case what you have done (as a means of conviction and proof).
With this little piece and others view and opinions, as an Analyst or Analyst-to-be, filter out reliable and accurate information from this thread and you are good to go.
Though this might not be the best but dont relent in search for knowledge.

Kk then. But parametric and non-parametric data should play some role. Knowing when to convert numerical to categorical to get maximum results also matters. Oh well, I am sure you mean well.
Thinking of going into learning R programming and Python as well.

If you know how much my company Data Analyst earn, you won't be asking this question
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by otabuko(m): 11:39am On Aug 19, 2017|
peacettw:most of our statistics are parametric in nature. Since they always seeks to differentiate between or among groups.

|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by peacettw(f): 1:00pm On Aug 19, 2017|
Erm, that's not completely correct. Hence the need to check whether it is parametric and if not either use statistical tests for non-parametric data or log transform it

peacettw:Sebi you bad like this for Stat. What about a p.m from you? Waiting. Cheers.

Try Geographic information system too
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by DrGoodmanFather: 2:34pm On Aug 19, 2017|
Chairman. You need to know more than SPSS.
Data Analyst does not only work in Research environment, they are needed in all environments and the job is the future.
Here in the US, you must know Python or R. Know Excel.
Also, you master one or two software like Power Bi , Tableau and you are guaranteed $75k plus a year.

I am interested in data science/analysis. Just conclude Bsc Mathematics/Economics and no job. I have been taking some free online courses at bigdatauniversity.com that i feel might help to get some basic knowledge of the field. I can be an intern or apprentice or whatever name it is called "trainee", under anybody or organization. I am open to advice or callup.

STATA is the least.. Add E-Views to it
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by Sylver247: 9:14pm On Aug 19, 2017|
Where is your location
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by zicoy6k: 10:48pm On Aug 19, 2017|
This is not true. You have to make sure the necessary assumptions (e.g distributional assumptions) are met before you decide which statistical tool to use.
@op While SPSS can fetch you good money, you can make much more if you learn R and SAS. SAS is not free but you can download the University Edition which is more than enough for learning and carrying out common analyses. If you studied statistics or a related course and want to be a good statistician and not just a data analyst, then I will advise you learn R, SAS, STATA and SPSS. Once you are good in these, others like MINITAB, EVIEWS, STATISTICA, MATLAB will be very easy to use. Your statistics, however, must be very solid. You will make a lot of money on fiverr if you know how to use R and SAS.

Did you see my reply to your pm?
|Re: Can I Make A Living Out Of Data Analysis by olayinkajnr(m): 5:42am On Aug 20, 2017|
So true. I know how use SPSS, MINITAB and R very well. I believe if I handle STATA,SAS and the rest, it won't be difficult to use.
To think that i learnt all these myself.

I'm a BSc holder in Statistics, while in school I'm respected and also earn some income too especially for final year student in Education, vet medicine, Agriculture dept, pharmacy etc... As at then you'll see Older men and women begging me to teach them Statistics work, analyze for them... Truth is Data Analysis is cool and it will continue because the field is not saturated due to its rumour. Atimes you earn up to 20k in less than a day when you have a rich clients.. Truth is for you to enjoy to data analysis you have to know your onions.
