At ordinal level
, only arrangement is allowed, at the interval one, are additionally allowed addition/subtraction operations and finally, at the last level, that of rapport, all operations are allowed.
Further, ordinal level
and ratio level data has to be integrated.
For variables measured at the nominal or ordinal level
of measurement, nonparametric techniques must be used.
If all choices are labeled, the scale should only be interpreted at the ordinal level
making the average score less meaningful (Jaeger).
A Statistical Model for the Analysis of Ordinal Level
Basically, he criticizes the axiomatizations for ruling out information about ordinal level
comparisons (who is worse off than whom), and for being insensitive to information about the distribution of utility.
Ipsative scores not only fail to meet the assumptions for classical psychometric analysis, they also constitute an essentially ordinal level
At the bi-variable level, a series of cross-tabulations involving categorical and ordinal level
risk/protective behaviors and treatment condition were performed.

The variables were ordered on a nominal and an ordinal level
