Problem with order of output

Hello.. Ok I have another class file that this method is being called from. Everything compiles fine. There are two problems however.

Firstly, the output comes out in the wrong order. I need it to be High Risk, Medium Risk, then Low Risk. Also, there is a tenth person who just doesn't show up! The array in which she exists is perfect and I see absolutely no reason she should be in this list. She is the first in all of the arrays, which may or may not have anything to do with the problem. Thanks for any help..

There is nothing in your code that does anything with ordering. In fact, if it is unordered, you headings printouts will be wrong.

I am assuming that the ordering is done elsewhere. That is probably a good place to look.
