There is a LAST_ANALYZED column in DBA_TABLES (and USER_TABLES).

There is an older analyze table command but I suggest the newer DBMS_STATs package to generate them.

As I mentioned before: The analyze table method is older and discouraged by Oracle.   It's best to use DBMS_STATS.

In later releases (10g and above), STATS are typically gathered automatically in the maintenance window:
