Section 7.08 on Data Sets, Software, Measurement Instruments, and Apparatus has the appropriate rule for citing statistics. Rule #54 for a Data Set would be the rule to follow. Note that this category includes raw data and also tools that perform data analysis, so check the section thoroughly, depending on the type of information you are citing.
