The discrete math area known as combinatorics has specific applications in statistics. In this paper, the relationship between combinatorics and statistics will be explored. Major areas of concentration will include: generating functions, special combinatorial numbers and their use in statistics, and the specific relationship of these functions and numbers to some of the more common discrete distributions found in statistics.
