Statistics hands down--specifically in the context of econometrics.  ;D

I'm in a microeconomics class, and was asked "That's like math, right?" about it at least twice this past Friday...

Economics is not math. There's some math involved (basic derivatives and formulas) though...

As an Economics graduate, I agree that it is not math. But it does get calculus heavy (and for certain areas heavy in linear algebra) in advanced undergraduate classes and of course at the graduate level. Hence the uninitiated making the erroneous connection.
