The study of percentages, bars, graphs, and charts, all in an attempt to make some sort of logical conclusion out of a bunch of numbers so that even more percentages, bars, graphs, and charts can be made.

Statistics may not be of practical use in everyday life, unless you own a casino.

The mathamatical study of the distribution of data on any subject to prove any point you're trying to make, when whining about it doesn't work.

39% of all statistics are made up.

also known as a useless subject one is forced to do to complete one's degree in Capitalism 1001 so one can get a piece of paper at the end of four years to be part of a globalised world so one can feed one's children (if one chooses to have any) and live happily ever after.

so if one does not do statistics one will lead a sad and lonely life.

The scientific way to say I am not sure

Statistics is like saying: There is 30% chance it will rain, 70% chance it will not rain, but I am not certain if its going to rain.
