For instance, region 1 and region 4 have no difference in terms distance or any other quantifiable measure, the number are merely assigned for identification (Weiss). The qualitative datasets are not amenable to mathematical manipulations as they cannot be measured. Level of measurement The consumer food dataset employs two levels of measurement; nominal scales and interval scales. For instance, the region and location are merely categorized for identification and therefore embody the nominal level of measurement.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
