1 A non-numerical characteristics of an element of population such as employment status being listed as employed or unemployed.
2 A numerical characteristics of an element of population such as income of a household.
3 Nominal is the lowest level, representing classification only of qualitative data such as gender.
4 Ordinal involves ratingand rank ordering measurements in which the intervals between consecutive numbers do not necessarily represent equal distances. Example: Rating or ranking a customer services as excellent, good, fair or bad.
5 Interval is the level of data measurement in which the distances represented by consecutive numbers are equal. Example: Air temperature measured in °C or °F.
6 Ratio is the highest level of data measurement and has all the qualities of interval measurement, but ratio data contain an absolute zero and ratios between numbers are meaningful.
