Categorical Data

  • Data which is sorted into groups is considered categorical data

Nominal Data

      • Categorical data with no hierarchy (i.e. one category is not “greater than” another) is considered nominal data

Example

Eye colour can be considered a nominal data type as the data (each person’s eye colour) can be placed into groups and there is no hierarchy
