Boolean Data


Definition: Boolean data are values that can be only Yes or No, True or False, or On or Off. Boolean data may be stored as one byte or as little as one bit (1 or 0).

What This Means: Computers use Boolean data, but they run so fast that the inefficiencies of stating everything in sets of Boolean values is offset. Boolean values impact the designers of questionnaires or tests where only right or wrong answers are desired. But mostly, computer users are far removed from Boolean logic.
