All numerical statement of facts are not statistics but all statement of numerical facts are statistics.Explain.

Statistics refers to the systematic collection of numerical facts. It indicates information in terms of numbers or numerical data such as employment statistics and population statistics. It must be noted that mere numbers or figures do not make up statistics. Numerical values can be referred to as statistics only when they relate to some variable such as place, time and person. For example, “marks of student A is 40” is not statistics. It is simply information. However, “marks of students A, B and C are 40, 45 and 42 respectively” can be termed as statistics. Thus, we can say that all numerical statement of facts are not statistics but all statement of numerical facts are statistics.‚Äč
