In statistics, statistical measurement is the process of establishing the statitical significance for a data set or a data point on the basis of the statistical analysis of statistical data, that allows the numerical findings to be interpreted.

For example in a normal distribution we can report the statistical probability of a particular value being found, by reference to the standard deviation, by the process of statistical measurement.
