Thanks Bobbywhy. Your answer is far more interesting than I had figured on. What prompted my question was this quote from the book "QFT III: Gauge Theory" by Eberhard Zeidler, page 950.

Quote Quote by Eberhard Zeidler
fermions of the same type (e.g., the electrons in a neutron star) are governed by the Fermi-Dirac statistics
If it were me, I would have said electrons in an atom.
