This paper analyzes the versatility of 10 different
popular programs which contain hierarchical
methods of cluster analysis. The intent of the paper
is to provide users with information which can be
of assistance when choosing a cluster analysis program.
The four dimensions which are emphasized
when discussing these programs are (1) agglomeration
vs. division, (2) linkage form, (3) similarity
measure, and (4) hierarchical solution vs. single-rank.
