No, you don't need to collect statistics just because you've archived the data. In Teradata, archiving the data doesn't change it -- so there's no point in collecting statistics again.
In Teradata there are different types of archive, basically "all-AMP" and "cluster dump". An "all-AMP" archive will contain the metadata (including statistics) on the archive media whereas a "cluster dump" will not. Hence restoring from an "all-AMP" archive will restore the metadata and statistics that were in place at the time of the archive.
There is a third type of archive, called a "dictionary rows" dump. This only contains the metadata, it does not include the data rows themselves. This type of dump is often used in conjunction with a "cluster dump".
Hope that helps.
