The latter outcome calls in turn for a revision of the ranking system, or a further collection of indicators.
To this end, one needs to carry out a thorough uncertainty and sensitivity analysis of the Index or ranking system under a plurality of scenarios in which different sources of uncertainty are activated simultaneously. The sources of uncertainty should cover a wide and versatile spectrum of methodological assumptions (all with their advantages and implications). Such a multi-modeling approach allows one to deal with the criticism, often made to league tables and rankings systems, that ranks are presented as if they were calculated under conditions of certainty while this is rarely the case. This multi-modeling approach has already proven to be useful in the development and validation of several composite indicators such as the case studies available as related publications.
