The general statistics screen.
Statistics are a game feature that allows players to track how many times they have completed certain tasks.
Statistics are divided into four sections: General, Blocks, Items and Mobs. The General screen displays a multitude of generic statistics which are listed in the table below. The Blocks screen displays the number of times different blocks have been crafted, used (placed) and mined. The Items screen displays the number of times different items have been depleted, crafted and used to destroy blocks. The buttons at the top of the Blocks and Items screens can be used to sort the list.

Statistics are stored in .minecraft/saves/world name/stats/uuid.json (world name/stats/uuid.json on servers). They keep track of these stats, as well as achievements earned. The file structure is JSON based; it looks like this:
{"stat.xxxxxx":value,"stat.xxxxxx":value,"stat.xxxxxx":value,...}
Statistics are stored in the statschange section. All of these fields are empty unless they need updating. For example, until you jump, the number of times you've jumped will not be recorded. Distance is stored in centimeters, and time is stored in ticks (where one tick equals 0.052 seconds). An example entry for Games Quit:
{"stat.leaveGame":4}
Note: video is outdated, doesn't show the new statistics and shows removed ones.
Beta 
March 18, 2011 
Notch talked about statistics (along with achievements) on his blog post:

“ 
Achievements will NOT be chores like “cut down 10000 trees”, but rather challenges like “ride a pig off a cliff”. Stats, however, will be used to keep track of how many trees you have cut down. The long term plan is to show achievements and stats from the profile page on minecraft.net as well, in case you want to brag.

Issues relating to "Statistics" are maintained on the issue tracker. Report issues there.
 The statistics ignore metadata. As such, all types of wood, wool, saplings, and dye will be counted as the same item. Coal and charcoal are also treated as the same.
 As such, on the items tab, there is no tooltip on ink sac. This is because ink sac has the damage value (0) of the dye ID.
 "Times Crafted" includes smelting, such as smelting wood for charcoal.
 The compass and clock icons are functional.
 When cocoa pod is viewed in the statistics list their full texture is shown, this includes the top of the pod aswell as the side.
