bounded data

Terms from Statistics for HCI: Making Sense of Quantitative Data

Data which has a limited range of responses with either a fixed maximum or minimum. This may be discrete data: for example, the number of heads in 6 coin tosses can only be between 0 and 6. You cannot have -3 heads or 7 heads (bounded above and bounded below). Similarly, for continuous data the user response time cannot be negative (bounded below).
