The word "Statistics" which comes from the Latin words status , meaning a political state, originally meant information useful to the state, for example, information about the sizes of population sand armed forces. But this word has now acquired different meanings. Â· In the first place , the wo…rd statistics refers to "numerical facts systematically arranged". In this sense, the word statistics is always used in plural. We have, for instance, statistics of prices, statistics of road accidents, statistics of crimes, statistics of births, statistics of educational institutions, etc. In all these examples, the word statistics denotes a set of numerical data in the respective fields. This is the meaning the man in the street gives to the word Statistics and most people usually use the word data instead. Â· In the second place , the word statistics is defined as a discipline that includes procedures and techniques used to collect, process and analyze numerical data to make inferences and to research decisions in the face of uncertainty. It should of course be borne in mind that uncertainty does not imply ignorance but it refers to the incompleteness and the instability of data available. In this sense, the word statistics is used in the singular. As it embodies more of less all stages of the general process of learning, sometimes called scientific method , statistics is characterized as a science. Thus the word statistics used in the plural refers to a set of numerical information and in the singular, denotes the science of basing decision on numerical data. It should be noted that statistics as a subject is mathematical in character. Â· Thirdly , the word statistics are numerical quantities calculated from sample observations; a single quantity that has been so collected is called a statistic . The mean of a sample for instance is a statistic. The word statistics is plural when used in this sense.

Statism is the doctrine that maintains that your life, money andproperty are not yours, but the property of the state. A statist isany individual who upholds this doctrine and/or supports itsimplementation. A statist knows that he cannot get away with-at least, notyet-openly declaring that your lif…e, money and property are notyours, so he advances these ideas by implicit means. Statists enact laws that forbid you from taking certain actionsaltogether or only if you have their permission-and the idea is: ifyou may only act by permission, you do not have a right to yourlife. Statists, through their regulations, determine how much of yourmoney you will be allowed to keep-and the idea is: if you do nothave the right to decide how your money is spent, your money is notyours. Statists issue decrees restricting how you may use yourproperty-and the idea is: if you do not have the right to controlthe use and disposal of your property, your property is not yours.These are the indirect means by which statists promote andimplement their ideas.

Arthropods are directly below a taxonPanarthropoda, which is under Ecdysozoa (moulters with a certaindescription of cuticle), Protostomia (bilaterally …symmetric with acertain germ layer configuration), Bilateria (bilaterallysymmetric); Eumetazoa (true tissues, with a certain embryonicphase), Metazoa (animals with a fixed type of body plan);Opisthokonta (broad taxon of eukaryotes with organized cell nucleiand certain other characteristics); Eukaryota (distinct cellnuclei); which falls under cellular organisms.
Notice that the word statistics is closely related to the word state . Some statistical methods were initially developed by governments as ways of gaining greater control over their populations although it must be said that at the same general time in history individuals such as Florence Nigh…tingale were using statistical methods to try to influence governments to take better care of their citizens. Nowadays we use statistics whenever we can reasonably assume that random phenomena are at play that we need to take in to account.
