3. Limitations of Statistics

It does not deal with individual items:

It is clear from the definition given by Prof. Horace Sacrist, “By statistics we mean aggregates of facts…. and placed in relation to each other”, that statistics deals with only aggregates of facts or items and it does not recognize any individual item. Thus, individual terms as death of 6 persons in a accident, 85% results of a class of a school in a particular year, will not amount to statistics as they are not placed in a group of similar items. It does not deal with the individual items, however, important they may be.
