Scaling
Scaling is the branch of measurement that involves the construction of aninstrument that associates qualitative constructs with quantitative metricunits. In many ways, scaling remains one of the most hidden andmisunderstood aspects of social research measurement.And, it attempts to do one of the most difficult of research tasks -- measureabstract concepts.Scaling describes the procedures of assigning numbers to various degreesof opinion, attitudes and other concepts.It is applied to the procedures for attempting to determine quantitativemeasures of subjective abstract concepts.This can be done in two ways:1.Making a judgment about some characteristic of an individual and then placing him directly on a scale that has been defined in terms of thatcharacteristics, and,2.Constructing questionnaires in such a way that a score of individual’sresponses assigns him a place on a scale.

Ordinal Data:
it includes the characteristics of Nominal data plus an indicator of order. i.e. a>b>c..
Interval data:
it has the power of Ordinal Data plus it alsoincorporates the concept of equality of interval.
Ratio data:
it includes all the powers of previous data plus the provision of absolute Zero or Origin. In research it can is usedto measure money values, population counts, distances, returnrates, productivity rates, etc..
