2. Types of Variables

Quantitative variables

Quantitative variables are any data sets that involve numbers or amounts. Examples might include height, distance or number of items. Researchers can further categorize quantitative variables into two types:

Discrete: Any numerical variables you can realistically count, such as the coins in your wallet or the money in your savings account.

Continuous: Numerical variables that you could never finish counting, such as time.
