Nominal Level

The Nominal level of measurement applies to data that consist of names, labels, or categories. There are no implied criteria by which the data can be ordered from smallest to largest.

- Triola (2011).


In this example the nominal level of measurement is the data that is categorized by what type of t-shirts there are (polka dot, solid color). This is just one example of a nominal level of measurement.
