Abstract

Several statistical procedures for estimation of the priority parameters in the setup of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) exist in the literature. The purpose of this article is to make appropriate comparisons of such statistical methods. Pairwise comparison matrices are simulated using different statistical distributions of the error part used in the procedures. Priority parameters are estimated for each simulated pairwise comparison matrix using the method suggested. Standard nonparametric statistical procedures are applied to check whether the order of the priority estimates is consistent with that of their parameter values irrespective of the choice of particular statistical procedure. Statistical procedures based on the reciprocal matrices are also compared with the eigenvalue method.
