Continuous variables provide precision and accuracy in measurement
The continuous scale of measurement is also known as "scale," "ratio," and for all intents and purposes in applied statistics, "interval" level measurement.
Continuous measurement allows for assessment of both the distance and magnitude of treatment effects.
Continuous variables also have the benefit of entailing parametric statistics, which are the most powerful type of inferential statistics.
Continuous outcomes further increase the statistical power and reduce the needed sample size to detect significant effects.
Means and standard deviations are much more easier to interpret and apply in applied empirical and clinical settings.
