Continuous Data

Continuous data is information that can be measured on a continuum or scale. Continuous data can have almost any numeric value and can be meaningfully subdivided into finer and finer increments, depending upon the precision of the measurement system. Examples of continuous data include measurements of time, temperature, weight, and size. For example, time can be measured in days, hours, minutes, seconds, and in even smaller units. Continuous data is also called quantitative data.
