15
15 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman Definitions Quantitative data numbers representing counts or measurements Qualitative (or categorical or attribute) data can be separated into different categories that are distinguished by some nonnumeric characteristics

18 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman Discrete data result when the number of possible values is either a finite number or a ‘countable’ number of possible values 0, 1, 2, 3,... Definitions

19
19 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman Discrete data result when the number of possible values is either a finite number or a ‘countable’ number of possible values 0, 1, 2, 3,... Continuous (numerical) data result from infinitely many possible values that correspond to some continuous scale that covers a range of values without gaps, interruptions, or jumps Definitions 2 3

22
22 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman nominal level of measurement characterized by data that consist of names, labels, or categories only. The data cannot be arranged in an ordering scheme (such as low to high) Example: survey responses yes, no, undecided Definitions

23
23 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman ordinal level of measurement involves data that may be arranged in some order, but differences between data values either cannot be determined or are meaningless Example: Course grades A, B, C, D, or F Definitions

24
24 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman interval level of measurement like the ordinal level, with the additional property that the difference between any two data values is meaningful. However, there is no natural zero starting point (where none of the quantity is present) Example: Years 1000, 2000, 1776, and 1492 Definitions

25
25 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman ratio level of measurement the interval level modified to include the natural zero starting point (where zero indicates that none of the quantity is present). For values at this level, differences and ratios are meaningful. Example: Prices of college textbooks Definitions

26
26 Chapter 1. Section 1-1 and 1-2. Triola, Elementary Statistics, Eighth Edition. Copyright 2001. Addison Wesley Longman Levels of Measurement Nominal - categories only Ordinal - categories with some order Interval - differences but no natural starting point Ratio - differences and a natural starting point
