Statistics (from the New Latin statisticus) is a branch of mathematics dealing with the collection, classification, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of masses of numerical data for drawing inferences on the basis of their quantifiable likelihood (probability). Statistics can interpret aggregates of data too large to be intelligible by ordinary observation because such data (unlike individual quantities) tend to behave in regular, predictable manner. It is subdivided into descriptive statistics and inferential statistics.
