Hello, I need guidance on how I can analyze ranked variables. I want to find out which response was most important. I have 10 Factors and i needed respondents to provide ranks for their preferences on a scale of 1 to 5. I have tried using the Henry Garet Method but it looks like my data do not meet one criterion (Rank factors = Total number of factors).

Why did you post this to "Random Chat"? There are
plenty of appropriate sub-forums for such a question.

I am not sure if I understand your description correctely.
You have 10 "factors" which were rated on a 1-5 scale?
If yes, you could do a Friedman test for a global analysis,
and sign tests for pairwise analyses.

With kind regards
