We will outline some of the important problems of extending the relational model for processing statistical data bases. We achieve this by augmenting to relational algebra few more numerical operations without altering the relational algebra. This algebra is referred to as statistical relational algebra. Applications of this extended extended relational model for solving some common statistical problems are discussed in the paper.
