interval data (in-ter-văl) pl. n. data on a scale of measurement (e.g. temperature on the Celsius scale) in which the intervals between points on the scale are equal but there is no absolute zero. Thus differences between data can be quantified but proportions cannot, since the scale reflects only relative positions in space, time, or magnitude.
