What is a Site Column? - SharePoint & Office 365 Sites

Site columns are the reusable column definitions. You can use site columns across all your sites in a site collection as long as it is contained on a root site. Site columns which are created on sub-sites will only be available on that particular sub-site and the child sub-sites of the sub-site. For this reason, it’s a best practice to create site columns on the root site so that they will be available to all sub-sites as needed.
Simply, we can say that Site Columns are the basic data types used to represent data in SharePoint.
There are many site column types, e.g.  Single line of text, Multiple lines of text, Choice (menu to choose from) etc. you can use these type according to the nature of the data.
