Sounds like it belongs in the same trash can as "metrics"  (not to be
confussed with the genuine mathematical term "metric").

.

Where did this word come from? It strikes me as one of those words that
is made up by the business community. Was it? Or was it made up by
statisticians? Wikipedia and Wiktionary are not satisfying in their
explanation. The term permeates SAS and SPSS sites pages, but not Stata
pages. I think that's a good thing.
