Abstract : Dissimilarity linkage analysis (DLA) is a simple procedure for developing a typology from empirical attributes that permits the clustering of entities. First the procedure develops a taxonomy of types from empirical attributes possessed by entities in the sample. Second, the procedure assigns entities to one, and only one, type in the taxonomy. This two-step procedure clearly contrasts with many existing clustering techniques that are concerned only with the second step of the two-stage procedure. (Author)
