# Examples of discrete and continuous data

## What are 5 examples of continuous data?

**Examples of continuous data:**

- The amount of time required to complete a project.
- The height of children.
- The amount of time it takes to sell shoes.
- The amount of rain, in inches, that falls in a storm.
- The square footage of a two-bedroom house.
- The weight of a truck.
- The speed of cars.
- Time to wake up.

## What is an example of continuous data?

Continuous data is data that can take any value.

**Height, weight, temperature and length**are all examples of continuous data. Some continuous data will change over time; the weight of a baby in its first year or the temperature in a room throughout the day.## What is an example of discrete?

Discrete variables are countable in a finite amount of time. For example, you can count the change in your pocket. You can count the money in your bank account. You could also count the amount of money in everyone’s bank accounts.

## What is the best example of discrete data?

Discrete data is a count that involves integers â€” only a limited number of values is possible.

…

…

**For example:**- The number of students who have attended the class;
- The number of customers who have bought different products;
- The number of groceries people are purchasing every day;

## Is age continuous or discrete?

Mondal[1] suggests that age can be viewed as a

**discrete variable**because it is commonly expressed as an integer in units of years with no decimal to indicate days and presumably, hours, minutes, and seconds.## Is Money discrete or continuous?

discrete

In the real-world, we can only earn or spend money, in discrete units. Therefore, we should, in theory, consider money to be a

**discrete variable**.## What is discrete data and give its example?

Discrete data is

**information that we collect that can be counted and that only has a certain number of values**. Examples of discrete data include the number of people in a class, test questions answered correctly, and home runs hit.## Is shoe size continuous or discrete?

1. Shoe size is whole number (

**discrete**), but the underlying measure is foot length which is measurement (continuous) data.## Is gender discrete or continuous?

## How do you know if data is continuous?

Key characteristics of continuous data

**Continuous data changes over time and can have different values at different time intervals**. Continuous data is made up of random variables, which may or may not be whole numbers. Continuous data is measured using data analysis methods such as line graphs, skews, and so on.

## What is continuous data in statistics?

Continuous data is data that can be measured on an infinite scale, It can take any value between two numbers, no matter how small. The measure can be virtually any value on the scale.

## What are continuous data sets?

A continuous data set is

**a quantitative data set representing a scale of measurement that can consist of numbers other than whole numbers, like decimals and fractions**. Continuous data sets would consist of values like height, weight, length, temperature, and other measurements like that.## What is an example of a continuous graph?

The graph of a continuous function should not have any breaks. The

**polynomial functions, exponential functions, graphs of sin x and cos x**are examples of a continuous function over the set of all real numbers.## Is shoe size continuous or discrete?

1. Shoe size is whole number (

**discrete**), but the underlying measure is foot length which is measurement (continuous) data.## Is age a continuous variable?

â€“ Is age discrete or continuous? Age is a discrete variable when counted in years, for example when you ask someone about their age in a questionnaire.

**Age is a continuous variable when measured with high precision**, for example when calculated from the exact date of birth.## Is rainfall continuous or discrete data?

Surfaces are

**continuous data**, such as elevation, rainfall, pollution concentration, and water tables.## Is blood type continuous or discrete?

categorical

Blood type is

**not a discrete random variable**because it is categorical. Continuous random variables have numeric values that can be any number in an interval. For example, the (exact) weight of a person is a continuous random variable. Foot length is also a continuous random variable.## Is eye color discrete or continuous?

Examples. The following are examples of

**discrete variables**: Gender. Eye color (brown, blue, green, hazel)
