Units of Measurement

Measurement is the foundation upon which much technological, scientific, economic, and social inquiry rests. Before things can be analyzed and subjected to scientific investigation or mathematical modeling, they must first be quantified by appropriate measurement principles. Measurable attributes include such diverse concepts as voting preferences, consumer price indices, speed and acceleration, length, monetary value, duration of an Olympic race, or probability of contracting a fatal disease.
