The term is distinguished from the term quantitative data, in which items are described in terms of quantity and in which a range numerical values are used without implying that a particular numerical value refers to a particular distinct category

- Concepts :* Quality , the non-inferiority or superiority of something* Quality , an attribute or a property* Quality , in response theory

A quantitative property is one that exists in a range of magnitudes, and can therefore be measured with a number. Measurements of any particular quantitative property are expressed as a specific quantity, referred to as a unit, multiplied by a number. Examples of physical quantities are distance, mass, and time

Quantity is a property that can exist as a magnitude or multitude. Quantities can be compared in terms of "more" or "less" or "equal", or by assigning a numerical value in terms of a unit of measurement. Quantity is among the basic classes of things along with quality, substance, change, and relation

Quantization is the procedure of constraining something from a relatively large or continuous set of values to a relatively small discrete set

In physics, a quantum is the minimum amount of any physical entity involved in an interaction. Behind this, one finds the fundamental notion that a physical property may be "quantized," referred to as "the hypothesis of quantization". This means that the magnitude can take on only certain discrete values. There is a related term of quantum number
