Much of economics depends on statistics. Economists use statistics to collect information, analyze data, and test hypotheses. Relationships between supply and demand and imports and exports are found using statistical information. The same can be said for figuring out the inflation rate, the per capita income, and even the national income account. A good example of statistics and economics in the real world would be the Census Bureau and the information they collect and use to decide many other political items.
