## sta·tis·tic

(stə-tĭs′tĭk)
n.
1. A numerical piece of information.
2. A calculated numerical value (such as the sample mean) that characterizes some aspect of a sample set of data, and that is often meant to estimate the true value of a corresponding parameter (such as the population mean) in an underlying population.
3. One viewed solely as a piece of statistical or numerical information: got laid off and became another statistic in the slumping economy.

[Ultimately from New Latin statisticus, of statecraft; see statistics.]
