interval scale

n
(Statistics) statistics a scale of measurement of data according to which the differences between values can be quantified in absolute but not relative terms and for which any zero is merely arbitrary: for instance, dates are measured on an interval scale since differences can be measured in years, but no sense can be given to a ratio of times. Compare ordinal scale, ratio scale, nominal scale
