Statistics requires a lot of reasoning which could not be done by a robot.

Computers are getting more advanced. Already, there are programs that just take the numbers a person puts in and puts it into a graph, calculates all the things needed for you. All someone has to do is develop a system that finds the information itself, which is not impossible. It is not even improbable with today's technology. It is coming.
