Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 1 Quantitative data consists of numerical data. It consists of numbers representing counts or measurement. For example, height of a student, number of subjects of a student and the general average of the grades of a student. All of them are stated in numbers so they are all quantitative data. Categorical data or qualitative data does not consists number. It is a kind of data where the measurement is divided into categories. For example, gender, names, scales or any labels.
