The statistics in the ALL_TABLES/DBA_TABLES (and other) views will NOT
change if the data in the table does not change. If you do
not UPDATE, DELETE, INSERT, etc., then no matter what percent you sample,
the evaluated statistics will not change.

However, if you do change the contents of the table (say by deleting 50%
of all records), then many statistics will change (NUM_ROWS for starters).

Hope this helps!
