I mean person who administrates something is called administrator. Person who manages something is called manager. How to call a person who works with statistics?

  • I don't think your line of reasoning is quite right. A manager doesn't "work with managing", but you would have gotten it if you said that "a mathematician works with math"

    TIKSN, the "how to call" wording is incorrect in English. You should replace the how with what. You would benefit from reading the discussion at this link english.stackexchange.com/questions/150325/…

One calls him or her a "statistician."

    Could TIKSN not find this in a dictionary? Or is EL&U now so well-established that one comes here before a dictionary? If so, it seems to have worked.

    @GEdgar I would really like to know how to look up a word of which I only know the meaning. You know, as a English learner, I often don't know how to express myself because I can't find a suitable phrase.

  • In this case, look in the dictionary near the entry "statistics" to find related words.
