I have salary data of 3000 employees ranging from 3000 - 10000 dollars.
Based on my understanding:(https://mathbitsnotebook.com/Algebra1/FunctionGraphs/FNGContinuousDiscrete.html)
- Continuous data is a set of data if the values belonging to the set can take on ANY value within a finite or infinite interval.
- Discrete data is a set of data if the values belonging to the set are distinct and separate (unconnected values).
If I apply the above definition to my data set,
- The salary of the group can take any value within a finite or infinite interval.
- The salary of each individual in the group is also distinct and separate.
I am new to this and quite confused here. I understand the basic difference that continuous is measured and discrete is counted.
But is the salary of the group continuous or discrete?
