Continuous Data

Data are said to be continuous if there are values between any two plausible values.

Example 1

Blood pressure (in mmHg) is continuous if it is precisely measured. It may go up to many decimal places.

Example 2

Bone mineral density (BMD) test measures the mineral density, such as calcium, in bones. Today's technology makes it possible to be precisely measured and can be considered continuous.
