The Morningstar’s based rating system is measured on an ordinal scale. The
values can be ranked and categorized but the differences between ranks are
meaningless. The data shows that 25 of the 30 (approximately 83%) of the
companies have a two or three-star rating. Only 5 of the 30 companies have
a four-star rating. None of the companies has a one-star or a five-star rating.
c. The Stock Price data is measured on a ratio scale. This type of scale is the
strongest form of measurement. There is a true zero point which allows for
the calculation of meaningful ratios between values.
