When statistics was updated?

Statistics are used by the SQL Server optimizer to choose the efficient plan.  When we don’t have up to date statistics
it may end with SQL server optimizer choosing inefficient query plan. We can use below query to identify when SQL Server
statistics were last updated.

select db_id() as dbid,
  case
    when indid IN (0, 1) then convert (char (12), rows)
    else (select rows from dbo.sysindexes i2 where i2.id =  i.id and i2.indid in (0,1)) -- ''-''
  end as rowcnt,
  case
    when indid IN (0, 1) then rowmodctr
    else convert (bigint, rowmodctr) + (select rowmodctr from dbo.sysindexes i2 where i2.id =  i.id and i2.indid in (0,1))
  end as row_mods,
  case rows when 0 then 0 else convert (bigint,
    case
      when indid IN (0, 1) then convert (bigint, rowmodctr)
      else rowmodctr + (select convert (bigint, rowmodctr) from dbo.sysindexes i2 where i2.id =  i.id and i2.indid in (0,1))
    end / convert (numeric (20,2), (select case convert (bigint, rows) when 0 then 0.01 else rows end from dbo.sysindexes i2 where i2.id =  i.id and i2.indid in (0,1))) * 100)
  end as pct_mod,
  convert (nvarchar, u.name + '.' + o.name) as objname,
  case when i.status&0x800040=0x800040 then 'AUTOSTATS'
    when i.status&0x40=0x40 and i.status&0x800000=0 then 'STATS'
    else 'INDEX' end as type,
  convert (nvarchar, i.name) as idxname, i.indid,
  stats_date (o.id, i.indid) as stats_updated,
  case i.status & 0x1000000 when 0 then 'no' else '*YES*' end as norecompute,
  o.id as objid , rowcnt, i.status
from dbo.sysobjects o, dbo.sysindexes i, dbo.sysusers u
where o.id = i.id and o.uid = u.uid and i.indid between 1 and 254 and o.type = 'U'
order by pct_mod desc, convert (nvarchar, u.name + '.' + o.name), indid
