Data is individual pieces of factual information recorded and used for the purpose of analysis. It is the raw information from which statistics are created.
Statistics are the results of data analysis - its interpretation and presentation. In other words some computation has taken place that provides some understanding of what the data means. Statistics are often, though they don’t have to be, presented in the form of a table, chart, or graph.
