Statistic

A statistic is a numerical value that summarizes or describes a set of data. Statistics are often used to analyze and interpret data, and they can provide valuable insights into patterns, trends, and relationships in the data. Some common types of statistics include measures of central tendency, such as the mean, median, and mode, which describe the center or typical value of a data set, and measures of dispersion, such as the range and standard deviation, which describe the spread or variability of a data set. Statistics can be calculated using a variety of methods and tools, including statistical software and specialized calculators. Statisticians are professionals who specialize in the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data.
