Monte carlo procedures were used to generate
data sets that resembled MMPI psychotic (8-6),
neurotic (1-3-2), and personality disorder (4-9) patterns.
Lorr’s clumping method, inverse factor analysis,
average linkage, and Ward’s method were the
clustering methods compared. The solutions were
found to vary in terms of misclassifications and
coverage. The clustering solutions also varied as a
function of different optional parameters associated
with each method.
