Multidimensional Scaling of Binary Dissimilarities: Direct and Derived Approaches.
Simmen, Martin W.
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v31 n1 p47-67 1996
Several methodological issues in the multidimensional scaling of coarse dissimilarities were studied, examining whether it was better to scale dissimilarity data directly or to scale a new matrix derived from the original by row comparisons. Findings support an alternative row-comparison measure based on the Jacard coefficient. (SLD)
