S.No. | Discrete Data | Continuous Data |

1 | A set of data is said to be discrete if the values belonging to the set are distinct and separate. | A set of data is said to be continuous if the values belonging to the set can take on any value within a finite or infinite interval. |

2 | Refers to data with well-defined boundaries or in otherwise empty space. | Values are distributed across a surface without interruption. |

3 | Can take on only integer values. | Can take on any value. |

5 | Can be represented in the form of digital signal. | Can be represented in the form of an analog signal. |

6 | There is nothing in between | There is always something in between. |
