GVME_Consensus: Gordon-Vichi Macroeconomic Consensus Partition Data

Description

The soft (“fuzzy”) consensus partitions for the macroeconomic partition data given in Gordon and Vichi (2001).

Usage

1
data("GVME_Consensus")

Format

A named cluster ensemble of eight soft partitions of 21 countries terms into two or three classes.

Details

The elements of the ensemble are consensus partitions for the macroeconomic partition data in Gordon and Vichi (2001), which are available as data set GVME. Element names are of the form "m/k", where m indicates the consensus method employed (one of MF1, MF2, JMF, and S&S, corresponding to the application of models 1, 2, and 3 in Gordon and Vichi (2001) and the approach in Sato and Sato (1994), respectively), and k denotes the number classes (2 or 3).

## Load the consensus partitions.
data("GVME_Consensus")
## Pick the partitions into 2 classes.
GVME_Consensus_2 <- GVME_Consensus[1 : 4]
## Fuzziness using the Partition Coefficient.
cl_fuzziness(GVME_Consensus_2)
## (Corresponds to 1 - F in the source.)
## Dissimilarities:
cl_dissimilarity(GVME_Consensus_2)
cl_dissimilarity(GVME_Consensus_2, method = "comem")
