If you have a data set, for example observations of the length of TdF stages, for exampleingsve said:Can you explain the y axis on the first graph. What is the rank and how is it determined?
Magnus said:If you have a data set, for example observations of the length of TdF stages, for example
187 km,153 km, 230 km, 202km, 219 km
you find the rank of each observation by ordering (from smallest to largest, potentially you could pick any ordering on the set but lets not go there.) the data:
153 km,187 km, 202km, 219 km , 230 km
and determine the place in this list of each observation, s.t. 187 km has rank 2 and 230km have rank 5.
Edit: Given that it says the rank is between 0 and 1 i guess the rank as I described have been modified in some way, like: mod rank=rank/(maximum rank). I have no idea about why you would plot the logarithm of the absolute value of rank/(1-rank) against the observation.
@OP: are you trying to say something with this or just throwing arbitrary graphs at us?
