Data scientists are not limited to the private sector. Many of them also work in the public sector. In the public sector, data science jobs are in areas such as weather forecasting, fraud detection, intelligence work, tax enforcement, etc. There are many advantages to IT jobs in the public sector.
Like other government jobs, public data scientists serve the public interest. One of the reasons why individuals choose a more lucrative job in a private organization is the opportunity to make a positive impact on the nation and society. The opportunity to create policies that benefit people is perhaps the most rewarding aspect of public data analytics work, and it is an opportunity that they currently have.
