Statistics is the science and practice of developing human knowledge through the use of empirical data expressed in quantitative form. It is based on statistical theory which is ... a branch of applied mathematics. Within statistical theory, randomness and uncertainty are modeled by probability theory.

Statistics and probability are interdisciplinary. See especially: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Anthropology, Economics, Education, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Business, History and Philosophy of Science, Leisure Reading — Science and Technology.
