Data Type is a very critical consideration in Lean Six Sigma or any other place where analysis is being used.

For a layman, Data can be put in 2 categories

1. Continuous categories

Anything that can be broken into small units.

That is which can be in a fraction.

For example:- Length, distance, weight, temperature, area of this room, velocity , age of the students, heaight, time, etc.

2. Discrete categories

Anything that can not be broken into smaller units.

That is which is a complete number.

For example, No of people in a group, no of students in a class, Head count, No of chairs in this office, No of walls in this room, No of managers/AMs/TLs/SMEs in a office, etc.
