Associative arrays are similar to regulars except that they can be organized in ways other than numerical order. Instead, each object in an associative array is assigned a label, called a key, which is used to organize the data, called a value, in a variety of ways. This video tutorial explains how associative arrays are used to uniquely organize a variety of data types in PHP and MySQL.

PHP has another type of array, called an associative array. …And it's important for us to learn how to use both types, and to understand the …difference between them. An associative array is an object-indexed …collection of objects and it's very similar to what we saw for the definition …of a regular array. But notice that it doesn't say that it's …ordered anymore. And instead of being integer-indexed it …is object-indexed, that is, they're going to be indexed by a label of some sort. …Let's remember the expanding file folder metaphor that I gave you when we were …talking about arrays. Associative arrays are similar, but they …work more like hanging file folders. They're not in any certain order and they …can be rearranged. Each of those file folders is going to …have a label on it. And that's how we're going to find information.…
Since we won't know what order the information is in, instead we will thumb …through those file folders until we find label that matches what we're looking for. …
