  Statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Statistics is a broad mathematical discipline which studies ways to collect, summarize and draw conclusions from data.
In contrast, mathematical statistics (or simply statistical theory) is the subdiscipline of applied mathematics which uses probability theory and analysis to place statistical practice on a firm theoretical basis.
The word statistics is also the plural of statistic (singular), which refers to the result of applying a statistical algorithm to a set of data.
