The evaluation targets were pairwise assessed with the ratio scale
in the range of 1-9, and the comparison matrix A was obtained as:
Examples of ratio scale
variables are length, area, volume, speed, and acceleration.
The latter form a ratio scale
, with a common known zero and a common unit across the gain and loss domains.
Deaths specifically attributed to cardiovascular disease were equally more likely for people at the high end of the ratio scale
the Ordinal Scale, Nominal Scale, Intermittent Scale and the Ratio Scale
For example, Plottage Area is under the ratio scale
, defined as [m.
and the use of verbal comparisons are used for weighting of quantifiable and non-quantifiable elements (Pohekar & Ramachandran, 2004, 369).
Chang (1996) introduced a new approach for handling fuzzy AHP, with the use of triangular fuzzy numbers for pairwise comparison ratio scale
of fuzzy AHP and the use of the extent analysis method for the synthetic extent values of the pairwise comparisons.
To do this, Sparks selects bar graphs but, since we measure time on a ratio scale
, a time series (broken line graph, as in fig.
It needs to be highlighted that the motivation ratio scale
developed in this study represents a very useful starting point for an examination of the extrinsic-intrinsic continuum.
AHP allows stakeholders with competing objectives to collaborate and reach consensus, by using a technique known as pairwise comparison to produce ratio scale
priorities (illustrated by the PRTY ratings in the chart).
Count converts to proportion or ratio (a ratio scale
without intervals) and into odds ratio.
