In Exercises 21–28, determine which of the four levels of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, ratio) is most appropriate.

College Rankings U.S. News & World Report periodically provides its rankings of national universities, and in a recent year the ranks for Princeton, Harvard, and Yale were 1, 2, and 3, respectively.

Step 1

Definitions:

**Nominal data:**

- This type of variable is used to label the variables without any quantitative values.
- It can be named but not ordered.

Step 2

**Ordinal data:**

- This is categorical variables.
- This type of variables are divided into group.
- Example: gender, eye color.
- It can be ordered, but the difference has no meaning.

Step 3

**Interval data:**

- It is an integer,
- This data always appear in the form of numerical values where the dista...
