Statistics

Statistics is the science and art of using factual material for modelling and inference.

The mathematical foundations of statistics are in the theory of probability and it deals with how to estimate and make decisions using knowledge which is uncertain or observational material which is subject to error.

There is a rich interplay of ideas between the theory of statistics and fields such as engineering, medicine and biological and behavioural sciences where statistical problems constantly arise.
