What does categorical data mean and quantitative data mean?
& Quantitative data (metric or continuous) is often referred to as the measurable data. This type of data allows statisticians to perform various arithmetic operations, such as addition and multiplication, to find parameters of a population like mean or variance. The observations represent counts or measurements, and thus all values are numerical. Each observation represents a characteristic of the individuals in a population or a sample.
& Categorical data, also called qualitative or nominal, result from placing individuals into groups or categories. The values of a categorical variable are labels for the categories.
I am writing to express my gratitude for all the help this website offered to me in times of need. I believe this website is not a "cheating" source for "lazy" students, but an important source for those of us who are burdened with more than we can bear, have little to no facilities to handle the stress and workload, and are in serious need of help given at an affordable price. Thank you so very much to all those involved with this website who have helped students like me in desperate need.
