Quantitative data are measurements that are recorded on a naturally occurring numerical scale. |

Examples of quantitative data:

- Test scores
- Volume of water in a container
- Inflation rate of each year in the 2000s

Qualitative data are measurements that cannot be measured on a natural numerical scale; they can only be classified into one of a group of categories. |

Examples of qualitative data:

- Students program of study
- City of origin
- Feelings towards mathematics
