Abstract
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.
