statistic  a numerical characteristic of a sample.
statistical inference  the population is sampled (in a manner to ensure that the sample correctly represents the population). Measurements are then taken on the sample from which parameters of the population are inferred (or generalized).
statistics  the science of collecting, organizing, and interpreting numerical facts called data to answer realworld questions.
