What is the proper way to compile the data into an overall ranking, and what is the proper way to report this on a table? Some non-statistics sources said to get a raw score for each rank by multiplying the weighted rank by the number of times it was given that rank (e.g. #1 three times means 13*3) and adding up the values.

What is the "proper" research way of doing this? Is there a "proper" way?

I'm going to be presenting these results at a poster session at a research conference, so I'd like to make sure I'm on point.

P.S.- If it helps, I use Stata and SPSS

Thanks
