Biological sciences have very large variability, and it is difficult to understand completely all the parameters contributing for the event under study. In this situation applied statistics as a science has a great role to play for identifying the variables and their contributions in health and disease.

Statistics has been responsible for accelerating progress in all applied sciences by defining the correct methods of planning, collecting, analyzing and interpreting data for establishing cause and effect relationship.

No science can be learned or progress without continuous updates, hence collecting meaningful information, organizing information, and interpretation of the process and its outcome is always the necessity of all applied sciences, so the applied statistics does not need introduction.
