Defines the statistical function of the data in the variables. The default function is arithmetic mean (a mean value for the time intervall between start and end time).
This metadata will usually vary for single variables and will very often be defined in the variable name section for each variable. E.g. when reporting both the arithmetic mean and the standard deviation for a parameter.
Raw/unprocessed data may have different data levels.
Possible values for statistics are:
expanded uncertainty 2sigma
expanded uncertainty 3sigma
68.27% lower confidence bound
68.27% upper confidence bound
Statistics: <statistical function>
Example: Statistics: arithmetic mean
