### Statistic

A value computed from sample measurements, usually but not always as an estimator of some population parameter.

A statistic (singular) is a single measure of some attribute of a sample (e.g., its arithmetic mean value). It is calculated by applying a function (statistical algorithm) to the values of the items of the sample, which are known together as a set of data. More formally, statistical theory defines a statistic as a function of a sample where the fu...

a function of one or more random variables that does not depend upon any unknown parameter. (The distribution of the statistic may depend on one or more unknown parameters, but the statistic can be calculated without knowing them just from the realizations of the random variables, e.g. the data in a sample.) In general a statistic could be a vector...

A statistic is a quantity that is calculated from a sample of data. It is used to give information about unknown values in the corresponding population. It is possible to take more than one sample from the same population and the value of a statistic will in general vary from sample to sample.

Anything that can be calculated from a sample of data. The most common use of the word is for summary measures such as the sample mean and sample standard deviation, although graphical displays such as histograms are also statistics. When referring to the population mean or standard deviation, the term parameter is used.Descriptive StatisticsInvolv...
