Data is just another word for information.

There are a few different types of data. For example, there’s data we can represent with numbers, and data we can’t represent with numbers.

Qualitative – Cannot represent with numbers (something like eye colour, address or food preference)

Quantitative – Can represent with numbers (things like height, number of sisters or shoe size)

You can remember which is which because quantitative is the one with the N in it, for number.

There are now two types of quantitative data, discrete quantitative and continuous quantitative.

Discrete Quantitative – Data you count in chunks, 1, 2, 3… (things like number of sisters, shoe size, money)

Continuous Quantitative – Data you can’t count in chunks (things like height, time, distance)
