    Continuous Continuous
    Continuos Discrete

    Rasu, you are correct there are only 2 types of data. What your BB is talking about are your inputs and outputs (x and y). If you had a discrete x and a discrete y you would use a chi-square test etc.

    Hi Rasu
    Your BB is correct I will give you some examples of data types.
    Data types are two but what you have written below is permutations and combinations possible for these data types.Fpr X(Output) and Y(Input)
    1 Continous-Which can be further divided into different units(AHT,length)
    2 Discrete-Who;e numbers (total no of people,errors)
    Eg of the below
    Continuous Continuous-X-AHT (Average Handle TimeY-ATT-Average Talk Time
    Continuos Discrete-X-AHT Y-Agents or days of the week
    Discrete Continuous- X-No. of bottles produced Y-Length of each bottle
    Discrete Discrete-X-Errors Y-Agents
