Abstract: In the Analytic Hierarchy Process priorities are derived from judgments. Different priority vectors, however, can be obtained in the solution of a problem. The main objective of this article is to present two different compatibility indices between priority vectors that have been suggested. A comparison between the indices is presented, following a mixed qualitative-quantitative research approach.
