A collection and study of numerical data. (Statistics is a mathematical science pertaining to collection, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data. It is applicable to a wide variety of academic disciplines from the physical and social sciences to the humanities, as well as to business, government, medicine and industry.

Statistical methods can be used to summarize or describe a collection of data; this is called descriptive statistics. In addition, patterns in the data may be modeled, in a way that accounts for randomness and uncertainty in the observations, to draw inferences about the process or population being studied; this is called inferential statistics. Both descriptive and inferential statistics can be considered part of applied statistics. The discipline of mathematical statistics is concerned with the theoretical basis of the subject.

"Statistical" means an assessment of outcome based on comparative chance. For instance, if you put 10 black marbles and 90 white marbles in a black bag, and you take one out without looking while you are doing it, there is no way to predict what color the marble will be, but you can make a statistical prediction; Since there are a hundred marbles altogether, 10 black & 90 white, when you take one out at random you have a 10-in-one hundred chance it will be black (or 10% chance) and a 90-in-one-hundred chance it will be white (or 90% chance).

While statistics cannot predict the future with certainty, it can very much help in making sensible assessments of likely outcomes.

Good luck!
