Quantitative data is 'number crunching' data, used for quantifying information segments. This is a basic statistical form of data, considered raw data before analysis, and statistical data after the relevant controls are used to check for accuracy. Quantitative data is structured on a subjective basis, dealing only with quantities, and not qualified by any qualitative analysis.
Examples of Quantitative Data:
|Sales data: The ABCD chain sold 2000 fridges, 8000 toasters, and 10,000 other appliances in the June quarter.|
Population data: The town has 20,000 inhabitants. 5000 are over 60. 10,000 are under 40, and 5000 are children under 10.
