I've spent some time searching for how to do this, but I haven't been
able to find it. Hopefully, you all will be able to come up with something.
I have 10 "values" variables (val1 - val10) that respondents have rated
in importance from 1 to 6. I would like to turn these values into
rankings rather than ratings. That is, I'd like "1" to signify a
respondent's highest rated value, "2" their next most important, etc.
(Obviously with 10 variables and 6 levels of rating, there will be many
ties.) FWIW, the ultimate objective here is to use these as dependent
variables in a rank-ordered logit model.
Any help you could give me would be appreciated. Thanks!
