What Is The Variable In Statistics?

A property that can be  measured and given varied values is known as a variable.

Types of Variables

There are two basic types of variables: category and numeric. 

Categorical variables

A categorical variable (also called qualitative variable) refers to a characteristic that can’t be quantifiable.

Categorical variables can be either  Nominal or Ordinal.

Nominal variables

A nominal variable is one that describes a name, label or category without natural order.

Ordinal variables

An ordinal variable is a variable whose values are defined by an order relation between the different categories.
