Type of Variables

Quantitative Variable

Variables which can be measured.

Discrete Variable

 Countable variables are discrete variables. There is no need to be whole numbers.

Continuous Variable 

Uncountable variables are continuous variables. This contrasts with discrete variables.

Qualitative Variables

Non-numerical variable are called qualitative variables. Sometimes qualitative variables are represented by numbers. But it is useless to perform arithmetic operations on those variables.
