the level of difficulty would depend on the qualities of your brain and the abilities of your teacher.

It depends on how your brain is wired. If you have a good sense of shapes, trig will be easier. If your good with memorization and lists, statistics will be easier.

Statistics is more difficult than trigonometry.

Trig I find is easier but stats is more rewarding.Peter

The subject you know the least about will be the more difficult.

Generally, I would say that statistics is more complicated, hence more difficult, than trigonometry but statistics is also more useful in everyday life to nontechnical people. Trigonometry will be more useful in the (wood and metal) shop, engineering, and for those branches and levels of mathematics and science in which you will need calculus.

Well,it depends on your strengths really and the tutor's as well.I enjoyed trigonometry more coz it involved playing around with "puzzles" and came up a lot in different topics of my math syllabus.Statistic's popularity mainly controlled by tutor's capability as it needs comprehensive understanding of some sort.Otherwise stats can be fairly easy as well.

As said in other comments, it all depends on what you want. Trigonometry is more abstract than statistics but stats requires a lot of memorization and not really formulaic. BUT, trigonometry will get you farther ahead in the math. In real life, I only used stats a few times but not very often. I use trig every day for differential equations and special integrals.
