What is Data? Observed values of variables or responses to a survey.
Titles are called variables.
There are two types of Data: Qualitative (Categorized) which can be summarized by
graphs or proportions/ratios/percentage and Quantitative(Numerical) which can be
summarized by graphs and/or numerical description(mean, median, mode, standard
deviation)
Collect Data through questionnaire/survey, a designed experiment, and an observed
study.
Classification of Data
Type of Data Measurement Scale
Quantitative Data Discrete (20 years) or Continuous(20 years 3months) Interval/Ratio
Qualitative Data Nominal has no order or Ordinal which has order such as medals in the
Olympics.
