Statistics is a mathematical science that involves the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data. It is applicable to a wide variety of academic disciplines, from the natural and social sciences to the humanities. Statistical methods are widely used in industry to improve productivity and quality. They are also used for making informed decisions in government. Statistical methods can be used to summarise or describe a collection of data, to calculate the probability of an event occurring, or to make inferences about a whole group based on data collected from a sample of that group.
