How to check if there is a significant difference in ranking ?
Hi ! How to compare the ranking of sports teams in a country and to check if men(m) or women(w) teams are higher in ranking ?
Team - Medals - Rank
m - 120 - 1
w - 100 - 2
m - 90 - 3
w - 80 - 4
m - 80 - 3
From these examples, men achieved higher medals and ranking , but is there significance difference in the ranking? Would is be possible to select to compare the men ranking and women using Spearman ? for example
men - women
1 - 2
or there are better test to select?

What you would want to do, is to compare the means of the respective ranks.
You could do that with a Wilcoxon rank-sum W test or the Mann–Whitney U test.
