# What is an example of a continuous dependent variable?

## What is an example of a continuous dependent variable?

The weight of a fire fighter would be an example of a continuous variable; since a fire fighter’s weight could take on any value between 150 and 250 pounds. Suppose we flip a coin and count the number of heads. The number of heads could be any integer value between 0 and plus infinity.

## What is a good example of a continuous variable?

Examples of continuous variables are body mass, height, blood pressure and cholesterol. A discrete quantitative variable is one that can only take specific numeric values (rather than any value in an interval), but those numeric values have a clear quantitative interpretation.

## Can a dependent variable change naturally?

Dependent variables are variables whose changes depend solely on another variable—usually the independent variable. That is, the value of the dependent variable will only change if the independent variable changes.

## Is a continuous variable independent or dependent?

CONTINUOUS (SCALE) VARIABLES: Measurements on a proper scale such as age, height etc. INDEPENDENT VARIABLE: The variable we think has an effect on the dependent variable.

## What are some examples of continuous data?

Continuous data is data that can take any value. Height, weight, temperature and length are all examples of continuous data. Some continuous data will change over time; the weight of a baby in its first year or the temperature in a room throughout the day.

## Is gender a continuous variable?

Gender can be a continuous variable, not just a categorical one: Comment on Hyde, Bigler, Joel, Tate, and van Anders (2019)

## What is the difference between a discrete and continuous variable?

A discrete variable is a variable whose value is obtained by counting. A continuous variable is a variable whose value is obtained by measuring. A random variable is a variable whose value is a numerical outcome of a random phenomenon. A continuous random variable X takes all values in a given interval of numbers.

## How do you manipulate independent variables?

Again, to manipulate an independent variable means to change its level systematically so that different groups of participants are exposed to different levels of that variable, or the same group of participants is exposed to different levels at different times.

## What is the difference between independent and dependent variable in research?

The independent variable is the variable the experimenter manipulates or changes, and is assumed to have a direct effect on the dependent variable. The dependent variable is the variable being tested and measured in an experiment, and is ‘dependent’ on the independent variable.

## In which technique dependent variable is continuous and independent variable is continuous or discrete?

ANOVA
ANOVA. When you have a continuous dependent variable and categorical independent variable(s), use ANOVA. ANOVA will tell you if there is a significant difference in means of the dependent variable given the different levels of the categorical independent variable, or combinations of levels of the independent variables.

## What are the six different types of continuous data?

Common continuous measures are time, money and any physical measurement such as weight, height, length or temperature. Continuous Data can take on any value on a continuous scale such as temperature, distance, cycle time, profit.

## Which is not an example of continuous data?

Height is not an example of a continuous variable.
