Terms in this set (4)
Nominal
The lowest level of data (least precise)
There are no differences in magnitude between values, one is just as good as any other
This data type is sometimes also called "categorical" or "discrete"
Ordinal
Ranked, relative
There is a difference in magnitude but we don't know how large it is
Interval
Things based on the same underlying continuum
Each interval is equal in units apart
The differences in magnitude between the levels are assumed to be the same
Highest level of data and allows the most computations
Ratio
Absolute zero
The differences in magnitude between the levels are assumed to be the same
Theoretically even more detailed, but in practice there is no real difference between this and interval
