## What type of variable is values?

Quantitative variables

Type of variable | What does the data represent? |
---|---|

Discrete variables (aka integer variables) | Counts of individual items or values. |

Continuous variables (aka ratio variables) | Measurements of continuous or non-finite values. |

### What are the 4 Types of variables?

Introduction to Types of Variables in Statistics Such variables in statistics are broadly divided into four categories such as independent variables, dependent variables, categorical and continuous variables.

**What type of variables do not take on numerical values?**

Qualitative variable: a broad category for any variable that can’t be counted (i.e. has no numerical value).

**Can a qualitative variable have values that are numeric?**

Can a qualitative variable have values that are numeric? Why or why not? Yes; it is possible to have numeric variables that do not count or measure anything, and, as a result, are qualitative rather than quantitative.

## What are the types of numerical variables?

There are two types of numerical variables, namely; interval and ratio variables. An interval variable has values with interpretable differences, but no true zero.

### Is nominal data numerical?

Nominal data can be both qualitative and quantitative. However, the quantitative labels lack a numerical value or relationship (e.g., identification number). On the other hand, various types of qualitative data can be represented in nominal form. They may include words, letters, and symbols.

**What is a ordinal categorical variable?**

An ordinal variable is a categorical variable for which the possible values are ordered. Ordinal variables can be considered “in between” categorical and quantitative variables. Example: Educational level might be categorized as. 1: Elementary school education. 2: High school graduate.

**What is a discrete quantitative variable?**

A discrete quantitative variable is one that can only take specific numeric values (rather than any value in an interval), but those numeric values have a clear quantitative interpretation. Examples of discrete quantitative variables are number of needle punctures, number of pregnancies and number of hospitalizations.

## What are the numeric values?

1. Numeric is anything of, relating to, or containing numbers. The numbering system consists of ten different digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. If a value is an alphanumeric, it contains letters and numbers.

### What are numerical variables and types?

A numerical or continuous variable (attribute) is one that may take on any value within a finite or infinite interval (e.g., height, weight, temperature, blood glucose.). There are two types of numerical variables, interval and ratio.

**What is a fixed variable?**

Fixed costs do not change with increases/decreases in units of production volume, while variable costs fluctuate with the volume of units of production. Fixed and variable costs are key terms in managerial accounting, used in various forms of analysis of financial statements.

**What is categorical ordinal variable?**

## Can numerical data be ordinal?

Ordinal data can also be quantitative or numeric. When asked to rate your level of financial happiness, for example, the values are numeric. However, numerical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication etc.)
