The Data Types of MySQL are as follows:

  • Numeric – This data type includes integers of various sizes, floating-point(real) of various precisions and formatted numbers.
  • Character-string – These data types either have a fixed, or a varying number of characters. This data type also has a variable-length string called CHARACTER LARGE OBJECT (CLOB) which is used to specify columns that have large text values.
  • Bit-string – These data types are either of a fixed length or varying length of bits. There is also a variable-length bit string data type called BINARY LARGE OBJECT(BLOB), which is available to specify columns that have large binary values, such as images.
  • Boolean – This data type has TRUE or FALSE values. Since SQL, has NULL values, a three-valued logic is used, which is UNKNOWN.
  • Date & Time – The DATE data type has: YEAR, MONTH, and DAY in the form YYYY-MM-DD. Similarly, the TIME data type has the components HOUR, MINUTE, and SECOND in the form HH:MM: SS. These formats can change based on the requirement.
  • Timestamp & Interval – The TIMESTAMP data type includes a minimum of six positions, for decimal fractions of seconds and an optional WITH TIME ZONE qualifier in addition to the DATE and TIME fields. The INTERVAL data type mentions a relative value that can be used to increment or decrement an absolute value of a date, time, or timestamp.
