Overview

In order to support describing sports statistics, we need the ability to describe measurements that happen over a certain time period, where the value of the measurement can either be a quantity or a rate. Our current schema.org vocabulary is not sufficient to cover these needs but models, somewhat inconsistently, various aspects of it. This proposal aims to clean up the existing vocabulary and introduce new terminology to meet the needs of describing sports statistics. The Sports proposal is dependent upon review and approval of this proposal or similar alternative. The ItemList proposal also takes advantage of this proposal.
