If I went through a box of candy which contains 4 types of flavor (orange, grape, apple, strawberry) and recorded the number of each flavor in my worksheet, what is the type of data that it is involved: qualitative or quantitative?
I was very confused, that the flavor have 4 categories, which is categorical variable. When I count each of the types of flavor and record the result in a nice table, it looks like that it is quantitative data. Can someone explain this to me? Thank you.
