Numbers are not statistics?

It is said that all statistics are numbers but all numbers are not statistics as statistics is an aggregate of numerical facts and figures. A single value does not represent statistics. 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.
