: A simple but effective procedure to avoid degeneracies in ordinal Unfolding for preference rank data based on the Kemeny distance is proposed. Considering Unfolding as a particular MDS procedure with missing within-set proximities, unknown proximities are first estimated using correlations related to the Kemeny distance, and then the complete proximity matrix is analyzed in a standard MDS framework. A simulation study shows that our proposal is able to both recover the order of the preferences and reproduce the position of both rankings and objects in a reduced geometrical space
