What is Data?

Show me the Data!

Data can be Qualitative or Quantitative.

Qualitative data - Is descriptive information (It describes something)

Quantitative data- Is numerical information (numbers)

Quantitative data can be Discrete or Continuous:

Discrete data can only take certain values (ie. whole numbers - 1, 2, 3) on the other hand…

Continuous data can take any value (within a range)

Put Simply: Discrete data is counted, Continuous data is measured.
