There is a lot of discussion about Big Data these days, and various ways to quantify its characteristics. I propose a simple frame of reference.

Simply put, data can be big in the amount of measurements on an individual (eg, sequencing) or can be big in number of individuals on whom there are some measurements (eg, clinical notes, laboratory measurements, claims).

Naturally, it is exciting to imagine what happens when we reach the upper right quadrant.
