# Year 2 Data Handling - Comparing Categorical Data

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with asking and answering questions about comparing categorical data.

When data handling, Year 2 children will learn to read graphs and charts and interpret what they see. They should then be able to use the numbers generated to answer questions which involve comparing or categorising, for example, finding the difference between the most and least popular.
