What would be the proper Schema.org type for marking up ordered lists?

For instance, statistical rankings for sports player.

    The format of the HTML isn't what matters. It's the content. That determines what mircrodata format is needed. I don't see one fore this specific example.

    I came across an ItemList which resides under the Think -> CreativeWork nodes. Would this work? Feb 19, 2014 at 22:01
  • That looks pretty good, actually.

You could use Schema.org’s ItemList for the list.

In case of "statistical rankings for sports player": If you list the statistics of several players, each entry should be a separate item. You could use Person.

Example in Microdata:

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ItemList">
<meta itemprop="itemListOrder" content="Descending" />
<ol>
  <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">…</li>
  <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">…</li>
  <li itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">…</li>
</ol>
</div>

Note that a sports vocabulary was proposed recently, which

includes support for describing sports statistics

So maybe there will be some more appropriate classes.
