Etymology: [Cf. F. statistique, G. statistik. See State, n.]
Statistics is the study of the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data. It deals with all aspects of data, including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments. The word statistics, when referring to the scientific discipline, is singular, as in "Statistics is an art." This should not be confused with the word statistic, referring to a quantity calculated from a set of data, whose plural is statistics.

The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.
