Excerpt from this paper: According to Bennett, Briggs, and Triola (2009), “The nominal level of measurement is characterized by data that consist of names, labels, or categories only. The data are qualitative and cannot be ranked or ordered” (p. 56). In the fall example, the category would be the number of falls.

Excerpt from this paper: Inferential statistics looks at the data compiled from the descriptive statistics and makes inferences (estimations) to make conclusions or even predictions about the future from this data to estimate population parameters. An example would be a statistical commentary or a discussion of the results (Bennett, Briggs, & Triola, 2009). The skin tear study told the story of how the skin tears were happening, and which shift had the most.

Excerpt from this Uses of Statistical Information paper: The final level of measurement is ratio. Ratio contains all of the information from the previous three levels and is the only level that can have a value of zero and is similar to the interval level of measurement but the distances between each point on a scale is equal and ranking is determined by size. In healthcare, the ratio level of measurement can be identified by time and degrees (Garger, J., 2010).
