Description

Estimate of k-means bootstrapping stability

Usage

1
stability(x, k, B = 20, r = 5, scheme_2 = TRUE)

Arguments

x

a data.frame of the data set

k

a integer number of clusters

B

number of bootstrap re-samplings

r

number of runs of k-means

scheme_2

logical TRUE if scheme 2 is used, FASLE if scheme 1 is used

Details

This function estimates the clustering stability through bootstrapping approach. Two schemes are provided. Scheme 1 uses the clustering of the original data as the reference for stability calculations. Scheme 2 searches acrossthe clustering samples that gives the most stable clustering.

Value

membership

a vector of membership for each observation from the reference clustering

obs_wise

vector of estimated observation-wise stability

overall

numeric estimated overall stability
