Statistics is a branch of mathematics dealing with the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of masses of numerical data.
Two main statistical methods are used in data analysis: 1) Descriptive Statistics  which summarize data from a sample using indexes, such as the mean or standard deviation, and 2) Inferential Statistics  which draw conclusions from data that are subject to random variation such as observational errors or sampling variation. 
Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher was a British statistician and geneticist. For his work in statistics, he has been described as "a genius who almost singlehandedly created the foundations for modern statistical science" and "the single most important figure in 20th century statistics".
