a variable that can be measured with whole numbers and fractional (or decimal) parts thereof.

Something that has an unlimited number of possible values; for example, height, weight, and age are all continuous because a personâ€™s height, weight, or age could be measured in smaller and smaller fractions between the numbers of the whole inches, pounds, or years.

A quantitative variable with an infinite number of attributes.

A variable is said to be continuous when it may take values in a continuous range; i.e., volumes of fuel stocked or produced.

a variable which ranges through all the real numbers on the interval applicable to it.

A variable whose possible values are given by measurements which could in principle be made with arbitrary precision, and hence could take any values in a continuum. In practice, however, the values are rounded. continuous random variable is a random variable which can take any of the values in an interval.

a variable that theoretically can assume an infinite number of values (something that is measurable and ongoing).

A variable that may have fractional values, e.g., height, weight and time.

A variable than can take on any numerical value even between one value and another. Grade point average, distance in kilometers, loan interest rates.

A variable that can have an infinite set of values.

A variable that can take any value that represents a measurement.

Variables which assume an infinite number of possible values. Usually obtained by measurement.

A measure score in which each individual value for the measure can fall anywhere along a continuous scale (e.g., mean time to thrombolytics which aggregates the time in minutes from a case presenting with chest pain to the time of administration of thrombolytics).
