In Qualitative : Deals with descriptions, Data can be observed but not measured, Colors, textures, smells, tastes, appearance, beauty, etc. Qualitative → Quality.
In Quantitative: Deals with numbers, Data which can be measured, Length, height, area, volume, weight, speed, time, temperature, humidity, sound levels, cost, members, ages, etc. Quantitative → Quantity
