Meaning of `Survey.quant` values #239
I also got caught up on what quant was and after a quick google search it is short for Quantitative, which has a meaning of "relating to, measuring, or measured by the quantity of something rather than its quality."
Which I don't feel totally fits what the column is actually trying to describe, perhaps a better word would be measurement or category? Just a thought.
But, it could also be a representation of the original data and wanting to stay 'true' to the way that the records were originally recorded.
Yeah, I also assumed quantity, but that could have been more clear, and it would probably be a good idea to include that information also.
Regarding the 'original data', I did a bit of googling, and it appears that all of the people, places, etc. come from an H. P. Lovecraft horror story:
So, I'm guessing keeping the fidelity of the original data isn't an issue
I can submit a PR, but I'll wait a bit in case this might be a good task for somebody doing 'instructor checkout'.
