I have attached a flow chart that should help you figure out which level of measurement fits your data. Remember you are not concentrating on the data counts, but the labels associated with the data.

For example:
  1. 9.8 inches of snow
  2. 7 large bags of popcorn
  3. 8 Middlesex County College Students
  4. 27º Fahrenheit

For these 4 samples you should ignore the numbers, you are concerned with the labels, not the numbers.
  1. inches of snow
  2. large bags of popcorn
  3. Middlesex County College Students
  4. Fahrenheit


Answers:1. Ratio, 2.Ordinal, 3. Nominal, 4. Interval
