Are the following statements statistics?
1) " Birth rate in india is 18 per thousand"
2) "20 % of the people in the working age group in india are unemployed"
Please answer with reason

1) This statement is a statistic as it is a completely quantitative fact the depicts the birth rate in India  in clear terms.

2) This statement is not a statistic as the 'working age group' is not defined in it. The minimum limited for a person to be categorised in working age must be predefined to make this statement a statistics. Merely saying 'working age group' is a qualitative statement.
