Clumping data in 2-way tables: a user-orientated perspective

Doyle, John R. 1994. Clumping data in 2-way tables: a user-orientated perspective. Journal of the Operational Research Society 45 (2) , pp. 203-213. 10.1057/jors.1994.25

Full text not available from this repository.


Following a critique of existing algorithms, an algorithm is presented which will re-organize a 2-way data table to bring like rows together, and like columns together. Extensions of the method are described, and justified, to accommodate distances measured in modular arithmetic, and with bipolar columns/rows, as in repertory grid analysis. One value of the algorithms is that the user can see relationships in the tables without the data in the cells themselves ever having been transformed. Thus, users will continue to feel they own their data.
