Statistics involves the fitting of models to data and making inferences from these models. One is often interested in the models themselves because of what they may tell us about the underlying physical process that generated the data. Thus, much of statistics concerns itself with goodness of fit tests, confidence regions, and other tools for determining whether one’s model appropriately and accurately describes the data, and for making inferences from the estimated model.
