Please explain the various JavaScript data types?

Posted by Jessica Taylor | Updated on

There are a total of 7 basic data types supported by JavaScript. Each one of them is briefed up as follows:

  • Boolean – Represents true and false values
  • Null – Represents empty, nothing, and unknown type of values
  • Number – Represents both integer and floating-point values
  • Object – Used for storing collections of data or more complex entities
  • String – Represents single-character, multi-character, and alphanumeric values
  • Symbol – Used for creating unique identifiers for objects
  • Undefined – Represents value not assigned. If a variable is only declared and not assigned in JS, then it represents the undefined data type
