Origin

 
The word statistik comes from the Italian word statista. It means a statesman. Dr. E.A.W. Zimmerman introduced the work statistics into England and its use was popularized by Sir John Sinclair through his work, Statistical Account of Scotland 1791-1799.
 
We can identify three subdivisions in statistics now.
 

Descriptive statistics

 
Large amount of data is compressed into tables and charts in this branch of statistics.

How to Compute Mean, Median, Mode, Range, and Standard Deviation?

Inferential statistics

 

This branch of statistics deals with generalizing observations from samples to populations and statements about the probability of their validity.

 

Decision theory

 

This branch of statistics deals with decisions under risk and uncertainty

Five study material links are provided below for the five topics that form the foundation for a basic understanding of application of statistics.

Introduction, Organizing Data, Summary Measures of Data, Correlation and Regression, and Times Series Data Analysis
