Even more precisely, our proof does not even require that U10 and U20 be ordinally

Even if the items to be compared cannot appropriately be quantitatively measured by a metric using cardinal numbers, and thus lack metrical commensurability, they might properly be ranked ordinally
, in priority order, and thus have what we will call "ordinal commensurability".
This tool allows us, in a relatively simple and straightforward way, to ordinally
sequence states and variables, to infer the hierarchical connections to be found between and among states and variables, and to represent the "multidimensional or hierarchical change," "developmental," or "difficulty" distance between identified pairs of states or variables.

The ordered logit model is specifically designed to handle discrete dependent variables, such as CAMEL ratings, whose values are ordinally
