    Cross sectional data:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-sectional_data

    Side note:
    Cross sectional data is usually nicer to work with than panel data(time series) as the observations can usually be assumed to be independant, which would make the OLS regression estimator unbiased, consistent and efficient(in the class of linear unbiased models).
