Step 1
A data is said to be quantitative data if it can be measured on numeric or quantitative scale. Mathematical operations can be performed on the quantitative variables.
A data is said to be categorical data if it can classify the observations as names or labels. Mathematical operations cannot be performed on the categorical variables.
Step 2
The occupation is not a numerical data. Mathematical operations cannot be performed on it. Moreover, It can be classified into different categories, such as, different professions and any natural ordering is not there.
Hence, data such as “occupation” would use categorical frequency distribution with nominal measurement level.
Correct option is True.
