Data may be categorized as discrete and continuous or primary and secondary.

Discrete data

This is the type of data which is in the form derived from countable domain such as $0,1,2,3$. Examples of discrete data include the number of television sets sold during the week, marks scored by a student in an exam. Etc.

Continuous data


This is the type of data that may assume any numerical value within a specified interval. Example of continuous data may include the heights of people, the weights of objects.
