A Variable-Selection Heuristic for K-Means Clustering.
Brusco, Michael J.; Cradit, J. Dennis
Psychometrika, v66 n2 p249-70 Jun 2001
Presents a variable selection heuristic for nonhierarchical (K-means) cluster analysis based on the adjusted Rand index for measuring cluster recovery. Subjected the heuristic to Monte Carlo testing across more than 2,200 datasets. Results indicate that the heuristic is extremely effective at eliminating masking variables. (SLD)
