About Statistics

Statistics are the numeric facts and figures which have been created from the data. These can take the form of e-publications, e-tables or databases.

Statistical information can be described as the added value arising from the interpretation of statistics or data.  This information will often be in the form of some sort of analysis.

About Aggregate Data
