I am not sure what a real "statistician" is. If you mean someone with a doctorate in statistics you probably will never work with one unless you are at a university. Or work for a very small number of government agencies like the FED or Census Bureau.

My title is 'data analyst' and I have a Master's degree in statistics.

s you probably will never work with one

. But with analyst being a more vague label, you likely have a wider distribution of salaries.

I think meeting someone who has a PHD in statistics is pretty much, except at a University and a handful of government agencies, the same probability as meeting a Siberian Tiger. And that counts doctorates in Psychology and Medicine not (what I think of a doctorate in statistics) in math or statistics departments.
