Distiction for four level of measurements (Nominal Measurement,Interval Measurement,Ratio Measurement,Changing Data by Recoding) is important to have distinction for the followinr reason, [ in scienti?c research, data arise from experiments whose results are recorded systematically. In business, data usually arise from accounting
