SQLite ignore the sqlite_stat2 table.
Future enhancements may create
additional [internal tables] with the same name pattern except with
final digit larger than "4".
All of these tables are collectively referred to as "statistics tables".
</p>

<p> ^The [ALTER TABLE] command does
not work on the statistics tables tables,
but all the content of the statistics tables can be queried using [SELECT]
and can be deleted, augmented, or modified using the [DELETE],
[INSERT], and [UPDATE] commands.
^(The [DROP TABLE] command works on statistics tables
as of SQLite version 3.7.9.)^

Appropriate care should be used when changing the content of the statistics
tables as invalid content can cause SQLite to select inefficient
query plans.  Generally speaking, one should not modify the content of
the statistics tables by any mechanism other than invoking the
ANALYZE command.  
See "[Manual Control Of Query Plans Using SQLITE_STAT Tables]" for
further information.</p>
