Greetings All!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have what appears to be the most difficult question in the world based on the absence of even a single answer found on Google.

I am looking for statistical ranking methods/rules/guidelines, etc.

I work with data that is the result of taking continuous data (distance) and dividing it by discrete data (specific # of events). The results are often a group of 32 dense variables ranging from say, 1.1 to 3.4. However, sometimes the group of 32 resulting variables can have a broad range, say from 3.6 to 17.3. Overall, the ranges of these 32 variables can have even narrower or broader ranges.

What I am currently using but not feeling great about the results are, the dense ranking method, (1,2,2,3); the standard ranking method (1,2,2,4) and the fractional ranking method (1, 2.5, 2.5, 4). I know there are others as well.

My question is as follows:

Are there specific rules or guidelines which I can follow that will help me determine the best ranking method to use, as well as when and how to use it?

Many Thanks!!
