Quantitative Relationships
  • Quantitative information consists of two types of data:
    • Quantitative 
    • Categorical
  • Quantitative information always describes relationships
  • These relationships involve either
    • Simple associations between quantitative values and categorical subdivisions or
    • More complex associations among multiple sets of quantitative values.
  • There are four types of relationships within categories:
    1. Nominal
    2. Ordinal
    3. Interval
    4. Hierarchial
  • There are three types of relationships between quantitative values
    1. Ranking
    2. Ratio
    3. Correlation
