My initial understanding of DBpedia was that resources are lower level entities and categories are higher level entities. Since categories are higher level, I thought that they do not have a corresponding resource page.

However, today I realised that every entity in DBpedia has a resource page. However, now I am not clear why category pages are there when every DBpedia entity has a resource page.

My question is, what is the difference between resource and category in DBpedia?

I am happy to provide more details if needed.
