Abstract

Data collected by ordered category, i.e. a Likert scale, can be both challenging to understand and difficult to compare with other similar kinds of data. Building on the agreement measure we extend the application to include the calculation of a distance by which comparisons between agreement distributions can be made. This is useful in decision making when it is necessary to determine group positional changes over time, or proximity to agreement among separate teams.
