Nominal Scale - Market Research

A nominal scale, sometimes called a qualitative scale, seperates items based on a nominal value. Nominal values cannot be 'ranked'. For instance, ethnicity would represent a nominal scale, as you cannot rank 'White-British' as compared to 'Black-African'.

The same is true for language, religion, nationality and genre etc.
