## Is time in seconds continuous or discrete?

continuous

Solution: The time since the last customer arrived can be any number of seconds, fractional or not. For example, it could be seconds. Thus, this data is continuous.

**Is time an example of continuous data?**

But weight, height and time are examples of continuous data.

### Is time in minutes a continuous variable?

Time is a continuous variable, it can take any positive value in an interval. Even when we measure it in minutes, it can be measured with infinite precision, for example: 0.125 minutes or 0.13333 minutes.

**Is time a continuous measurement?**

Measures of time, height, temperature, and thickness are all examples of continuous data.

## What kind of variable is time?

Continuous variable: a variable with infinite number of values, like “time” or “weight”.

**Is hour a continuous variable?**

It depends how did you record the time, e.g. if you count days, or record hours rounded to the nearest hour then it is rather discrete; when you record days, hours and minutes of something happening, then it is closer to continuous.

### Is hours a continuous variable?

**Is time in hours discrete or continuous?**

In fact we have discrete-time and continous-time models. It depends how did you record the time, e.g. if you count days, or record hours rounded to the nearest hour then it is rather discrete; when you record days, hours and minutes of something happening, then it is closer to continuous.

## Is time a variable data?

The value given to an observation for a continuous variable can include values as small as the instrument of measurement allows. Examples of continuous variables include height, time, age, and temperature.

**Is time continuous or ordinal?**

1) With “time” as continuous, “treatment” and “time” are significant, but there’s no interaction. 2) With “time” as ordinal, the main effect “treatment” is not significant, but “time” and the interaction are. 3) And with “time” as nominal, both main effects and the interaction are significant.

### Is duration continuous or discrete?

Continuous

Variable Reference Table : Few Examples

Variable | Variable Type | Variable Scale |
---|---|---|

Time Duration | Continuous | Ratio |

Hour on the Clock | Discrete | Ordinal |

Date* | Discrete | Nominal |

Sales Figures | Continuous | Ratio |

**Is time of sleep continuous or discrete?**

Examples: Amount of sleep is a variable. 3, 5, 9 hours of sleep are different values for that variable. Variables can be continuous or discrete….Frequency distribution table:
