Abstract:It is rather common that ranking data are presented in media and elsewhere in the society. Mostly there is made no real statistical analysis of the data at all. We will here suggest a general method to obtain a suitable type of confidence statements about the position of a given unit within a set of units. One example is ranking of hospitals with respect to rate of failure of some treatment . We also prove an asymptotic result on the confidence degree.
