Statistics is used in business, medical research, social sciences, manufacturing, and many more areas. We use statistics to analyze data and make informed decisions. It helps us take a general look at any given data and identify patterns, trends, and relationships, which we can then use to make predictions and identify opportunities for improvement.

Descriptive statistics is a branch of statistics that deals with the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data.
