Description of Statistics
Statistics has been described as the science of learning from data: everything from planning for the collection of data and data
management, to end-product activities such as drawing conclusions from data and presentation of results. Statistics includes the
scientific application of mathematical principles to the collection, analysis, and presentation of data. Statisticians contribute to the
design of surveys and experiments; collection, processing, and analysis of data; and interpretation of the results. Statisticians apply
their methods in all subject areas. Sampling-obtaining information about a population of people or group of things by surveying a
small portion of the total is often used. Statisticians the where and how of data, determine the type and size of the sample group,
instructions and procedures for the sampling collection, tabulate the data and final analysis, interpretation and summary using
computer software.
