Rank probabilities indicate the probability for each treatment to be best, second best, etc.

`result` |
Object of S3 class |

`preferredDirection` |
Preferential direction of the outcome. Set 1 if higher values are preferred, -1 if lower values are preferred. |

`covariate` |
(Regression analyses only) Value of the covariate at which to compute rank probabilities. |

`x` |
An object of S3 class |

`...` |
Additional arguments. |

`ranks` |
A ranking matrix where the treatments are the rows (e.g. the result of rank.probability). |

`probs` |
Probabilities at which to give quantiles. |

For each MCMC iteration, the treatments are ranked by their effect relative to an arbitrary baseline. A frequency table is constructed from these rankings and normalized by the number of iterations to give the rank probabilities.

`rank.probability`

: A matrix (with class `mtc.rank.probability`

) with the treatments as rows and the ranks as columns.
`sucra`

: A vector of SUCRA values.
`rank.quantiles`

: A matrix with treatments as rows and quantiles as columns, giving the quantile ranks (by default, the median and 2.5% and 97.5% ranks).
