I would suggest: "collect data on a non-indexed column used in joins or WHERE clause"... IF the data values in that column are very skewed / lumpy.
So if you have a table with 1M rows but only (say) three values in a column then this is going to be very 'lumpy'. The optimiser needs to know this.
So if you have a table with 1M rows with lots of values in a column but one/two values are in a large percentage of the rows, then this is going to be very 'skewed'. The optimiser needs to know this.
So if you have a table with 1M rows but lots of values and no value dominates the others then you can probably get away without stats on that column.
