# Data Types

There are two data types in Tableau: **Categorical Data** and **Numerical Data**.

Some common examples of **categorical data** include gender, eye colour, or continents.

**Numerical data can be continuously measured**. Some common examples of numerical data include temperature, or height.

The first example shows that categorical data can be split into **discrete** categories.

The second example shows that numerical data can be **continuously** measured.
