A Statistical Identifier is an identifier generated via a probabilistic method. The inputs into the process are usually technographic characteristics of the web-enabled device or applications.

Benefits

Statistical identifiers are often used to detect non-human traffic.

Critiques of statistical identifiers refer to this process as "fingerprinting."
