Seeking an upgrade of his/her research and information, each researcher specialized in one branch or another of humanities must be familiar with statistics, the different statistical theories and the various statistics applied fields.

In short, statistics is a science with customized scientific methods, advanced functions, laws and various theories that make up the base for emergence and evolution of other sciences.

Statistics, in other words, is a science interrelated and interdependent with arguably all other sciences. Statistics is a common and mutual element of all sciences; they all make benefit of statistics in varying proportions. Statistics is a real-life science and individual or public behaviors and attitudes may be governed by a statistical theorem.

Thus, as explained above, statistics is a science with many functions and applications that are developed due to development and progress in all fields. Statistics is recognized as the most accurate and the best method of scientific research.
