When using the scientific model, the results of an experiment--which will have tested an hypothesis and have been built upon observations carefully recorded--are called the data. The data are the accumulated measurable, quantifiable bits of information gained as a result of the experiment. These results can then yield statistics when subjected to statistical analysis.
