Introduction Statistics
1
•Statistics is generally used to mean quantitative aspects of
data management but as a subject of study it refers to body
of principles and procedures developed for collection,
classification, summarization and meaningful interpretation
and for the use of such data.
•The discipline is useful in
converting random data to
understandable information and aids in strategic business
decision making.
Statistics has its origin in Latin word Status, Italian word
Statista and German term Statistik all of which mean
“Political State”. In ancient times the beginning of Statistics
was made to meet the requirements of State primarily and
hence the name.
The term Statistics is generally used in 2 senses-
1.Plural Sense
2. Singular Sense

Under this, the Statistics refers to numerical statement of facts
related to any field of enquiry such as data related to income,
expenditure, population etc
in the sense of numerical data or Statistical data.
2
Definitions- “Statistics are numerical statements of facts in any
department of enquiry placed in relation to each other”-Bowley
“By statistics we mean quantitative data affected to a marked extent
by multiplicity of cause”- Yule and Kendall
1. Aggregation of facts- A single number does not
constitute Statistics as no conclusion can be drawn from it.
Only the aggregate of facts capable of offering meaningful
information constitute Statistics.
2. Numerically expressed- Statistics are expressed in
numbers. Qualitative data like rich, poor, beautiful, big etc
cannot be termed Statistics.

Meaning-Plural Statistics
Features in
Plural sense
3.Affected by Multiple causes- Statistics is not impacted
by only 1 factor as multitude of factors influence it. For e.g
rise in prices can be attributed to reduction in supply,
increase in demand, rise in input costs etc.
4.Reasonable Accuracy- A reasonable degree of accuracy
must be maintaining while collecting the statistical data.
5.Placed in relation to others- Such data is called
Statistics which is mutually related and comparable.
Height of 40 people cannot be compared with age of 40
people as data is not related.
6.Pre-determined purpose- Data collected without any
purpose or randomly will only be a numerical value and
not Statistics.
7.Enumerated or Estimated- Data can either be
collected by estimation (if the field of investigation is very
vast) or enumeration (for smaller set of data).
8. Collected in systematic manner- Haphazardly collected
data will not provide conclusive evidence so systematic
collection should be planned beforehand.

Definitions
Under this, Statistics refers to science in which we deal with
techniques and methods for collecting, classifying, presenting,
analyzing and interpreting the data
in the meaning of Statistical methods.
Definitions- “Statistics may be defined as the collection, presentation,
analysis and interpretation of numerical data.”-Croxton and Cowden
“Statistics is the science which deals with the collection, classification
and tabulation of numerical facts as a basis for the explanation,
description and comparison of phenomena- Lovitt
Given the definitions, the following stages of Statistics emerge-
1. Collection of data- Decide how, where, when, what kind of data to
be collected.
2. Organization of data- Organize the collected data to make it
comparable and simple.
3. Presentation of data- Make the data
intelligible, brief and attractive.
4. Analysis of data- To draw
conclusions, analysis of data is
required by different methods e.g. central tendency, correlation.
5. Interpretation of data- Comparison and conclusions in simple and
easy language.
Nature of Statistics
Nature
The study of nature is to find out whether Statistics is Science or Art
As a science- It studies the Statistical data
As a Art- It makes use of data to solve problems of real life.
Subject
Matter
The subject matter of statistics is divided into 2 parts-
5
1. Descriptive statistics- It describes the data and consists of methods
and techniques to explain characteristics of data. The methods can
either be graphical or computational.
2. Inferential Statistics- It deals with methods which describe the
characteristics of population or making decisions concerning
population on the basis of sample results.
Limitations of Statistics
1. Study of Numerical facts-Statistics can only study such facts which can be
expressed in numerical terms.
2. Study of Aggregates only- Statistics studies only the aggregates and not
particular unit. No conclusion is possible from single piece of data.
3. Not the only method- Statistics is not the only method to study and many a
time does not suggest the best solution of each problem.
4. Homogeneity of data- Quantitative data has to be consistent and
homogeneous otherwise it will not be possible to draw conclusions.
6
Limitations of Statistics
5. Results are true only on an average- Statistical results only express
tendencies and are true on an average and not absolutely.
6. Without reference results may prove wrong- Circumstances and conditions
under which conclusions are made have to be studied otherwise the results
may give wrong impression.
7. Can be used by experts only- Only experts can make good use of statistics
and unqualified would find it difficult to apply it.
8. Misuse of Statistics is possible- The misuse of Statistics to seek particular
results is a possibility, more so when it is not easily understood.
7
Scope of Statistics
1) Statistics and planning :- Statistics in indispensable into planning in the modern
age which is term as " the age of planning'. Almost all over the world the govt are

in statistical technique are the outcome of wide application of Mathematics.
6) Statistics and Modern science :- In medical science the statistical tools for
collection and incidence of diseases and result of application various drugs and
Medicines are of great importance.
9
Functions Statistics
1. Expression of facts in numbers-One of the main function of
Statistics is to express numbers in easily understandable language
and interpret the results with certainty.
2. Simple presentation- Statistics enables presentation of complex
data in a simple format in terms of aggregate, average,
percentage, graphs, diagrams etc.
3. Enlarges individual knowledge and experience- Statistics

interpretation of data, precise
By doing analysis and
nature of problem can be
ascertained thus assisting policy formulation.

other laws for establishing their assumptions. E.g. Many laws of
economics namely law of demand, law of supply, Keynes theory of
employment can be verified by Statistics.
7.It helps in forecasting- Extrapolating present data aids in
forecasting likely changes that can be expected in future.
10

varied purposes and Statistics provide useful tools for decision
making support.
2. Importance for business, industry and agriculture- Estimating
