Counts the number of concordant, discordant and (left/right) ties between two rankings.

1 | ```
compare_ranks(x, y)
``` |

`x` |
A numeric vector. |

`y` |
A numeric vector with the same length as |

Explicitly calculating the number of occurring cases is more robust
than using correlation indices as given in the `cor`

function. Especially
left and right ties can significantly alter correlations.

A list containing

`concordant` |
number of concordant pairs: |

`discordant` |
number of discordant pairs: |

`ties` |
number of tied pairs: |

`left` |
number of left ties: |

`right` |
number of right ties: |

tg <- threshold_graph(100, 0.2)
compare_ranks(degree(tg), closeness(tg)) # only concordant pairs
compare_ranks(degree(tg), betweenness(tg)) # no discordant pairs
## Rank Correlation

cor(degree(tg), betweenness(tg), method = "kendall") # not 1, although no discordant pairs
