Outlier detection is a key element of modern statistics. The scientific community uses statistical outlier detection for a wide range of applications ranging from determining new trend beginnings through detecting sensor malfunctions and more.
At their core, Outliers are major deviations from the general trend of your data. Major changes in the added, removed or changed record counts could indicate a data loss or data corruption event that you should be aware of.
