PART II: Describe how these concepts intersect and why scales of measurement influence
decisions about statistics and graphics. Your description must be about 4 to 7 sentences.
By definition, scales of measurement refer to how different types of variables are categorized.
They differ in that the nominal data do not have a numerical value and order, ordinal data have
a specific order, and interval-ratio data have numerical value, a meaningful order and the degree
of difference between values can be found. Scales of measurement play an important role in
analyzing and presenting the data because the choice of statistics and graphics is strongly
driven by scales of measurement, that is whether the data is nominal, ordinal, or interval-ratio.
