Statistics is a branch of mathematics dealing with the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data. Statistics deals with all aspects of data including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments.

Statistics can be said to have begun in ancient civilization, going back at least to the 5th century BC, but it was not until the 18th century that it started to draw more heavily from calculus and probability theory. Statistics continues to be an area of active research, for example on the problem of how to analyze Big data.
