Kemal Kılıç, Sabancı Üniversitesi Kemal Kılıç, Sabancı Üniversitesi Spring Spring , 2010 , 2010 Nominal Scale In a nominal scale, names (which may be numbers) are given to things just to label and classify them. Dividing people into male and female is a nominal scale. Putting numbers on buses to identify the route is a nominal scale. Putting numbers on football players to identify their position on the field is a nominal scale. Arithmetical operations are meaningless on nominal scales. To add a 44 bus to a 102 bus and get a 146 bus is nonsense. There is no order as well. Bus 102 is greater then Bus 44 is also nonsense. No preference information . Week 10 4

Kemal Kılıç, Sabancı Üniversitesi Spring Spring , 2010 , 2010 Ordinal Scale The ordinal scale puts things in an order or rank, as well as labelling and classifying them. House numbers are usually on an ordinal scale because 1 is usually at the beginning of the road and the higher the number the further down the road it is. There is preference information but arithmetic means make no sense. Constructed scales in Decision Analysis are often “ordinal”. Week 10
