Sensitivity of the Complete-Link Clustering Technique to Missing Individuals.
Baker, Frank B.
Journal of Educational Statistics, v3 n3 p233-52 Fall 1978
The effect of missing individuals upon the stability of the partition hierarchy yielded by the complete-link clustering technique was investigated. Empirical distributions of indices measuring the goodness-of-fit between partition hierarchies based on full and reduced sets of objects were obtained for data sets in which individuals were missing.
