This review summarizes and evaluates the use of
multidimensional scaling in vocational psychology.
Multidimensional scaling applications are found in two
primary areas: vocational interests and occupational
perceptions. These areas correspond to the two major
uses of multidimensional scaling: configural verification
and dimensional identification. Two issues-the
relationship between multidimensional scaling and alternative
data analytic methods, and the selection of
occupational stimuli-are discussed. A number of developing
areas for the application of multidimensional
scaling are identified.
