Data Types

In any computer programming language, data type defines how a data store in memory. How much memory size occupied by a data is also determined by data types. Like other languages Python has also the following built-in data types.

Text Type str
Numeric Types int, float, complex
Sequence Types list, tuple, range
Mapping Type dict
Set Types

set, frozenset

Boolean Type bool
Binary Types bytes, bytearray, memoryview

A variable is named memory location. That means a variable basically allocates a memory location, which is mapped with a name called variable name. In python, we can declare a variable without any data type. But its data type was set just after we assign a value to it.


Rules of a variable names

  • A variable name must start with a letter or the underscore character.
  • A variable name cannot start with a number.
  • A variable name can only contain alpha-numeric characters and underscores
  • Variable names are case-sensitive (Name, name and NAME are three different variables)
