An Evaluation of Cluster Analytic Approaches to Initial Model Specification.
Bacon, Donald R.
Structural Equation Modeling, v8 n3 p397-429 2001
Evaluated the performance of several alternative cluster analytic approaches to initial model specification using population parameter analyses and a Monte Carlo simulation. Of the six cluster approaches evaluated, the one using the correlations of item correlations as a proximity metric and average linking as a clustering algorithm performed the best. (Author/SLD)
