Discrete

A discrete variable is a variable where the values are based on a count from a set of distinct whole values. A discrete variable cannot be a fractional value between any two variables. Examples of discrete variables include the number of registered cars, number of business locations, and number of children in a family, all of which measure whole units (for example 1, 2, or 3 children). Discrete variables are normally represented in pandas by integers (or occasionally floats), again normally in collections of two or more samplings of a variable.
