Question

For the data below describes below identify the level of
measurement as nominal ordinal interval or ratio

Answer #1

**Please don't hesitate to give a "thumbs up" in case
you're satisfied with the answer**

**Definitions:**

Suppose you have a categorical variable, then its a nominal variable.

If the variable is categorical but you can rank between categories ( like: Best, Better, Worst) then the variable is called Ordinal.

A **interval variable** is a measurement where the
difference between two values is meaningful. The difference between
a temperature of 100 degrees and 90 degrees is the same difference
as between 90 degrees and 80 degrees.

Ratio is same as interval but has another definition included.
It includes a meaning of zero - it means something whereas 0
doesn't mean anything in interval scale. For example, temperature
in Kelvin is a **ratio variable**, as 0.0 Kelvin
really does mean 'no heat'. temperature in Degree is a not a ratio
variable because it doesn't mean "No" heat
