Basic Statistics Data Used in Everyday Life

Present two different types of data, or variables, used in the health field. Examples could be blood pressure, temperature, pH, pain rating scales, pulse oximetry, % hematotcrit, minute respiration, gender, age, ethnicity, among many others. Then classify each of those variables as qualitative vs quantitative as well as nominal, ordinal, interval or ratio and justify your classifications. Finally, explain one type of analysis that could be done with one or both of the variables you selected. Your responses to other students can explain additional analyses that could be done with the variables they selected.
