Adjective > Noun; [feminine agreement?]

1. "Los históricos" seems to be an example of an adjective used as a noun? - [a feature of Spanish which may have been encouraged by its prevalence in Arabic, perhaps?]

2. I actually typed in "Las históricas" - because I thought that it was referring to las "estadísticas", and thus had to be feminine ?

Hola David

Yes, you're right, it sounds as if it is referring to the previous noun, therefore "las históricas", but it is really referring to historical data which sometimes it's sometimes referred to as "los históricos", so we'll clarify this bit with a hint or will change slightly that bit of text to avoid confusion. 

Gracias y saludos

Inma
