Description

The pams function implements profile analysis via multidimensional scaling as described by Davison, Davenport, and Bielinski (1995) and Davenport, Ding, and Davison (1995).

Usage

1

Arguments

data

A data matrix or data frame; rows represent individuals, columns represent scores; missing scores are not allowed.

dim

Number of dimensions to be extracted from the data.

Details

The pams function computes similarity/dissimilarity indices based on Euclidean distances between the scores provided in the data, and then extracts dimensional coordinates for each score using multidimensional scaling. A weight matrix, level parameters, and fit measures are computed for each subject in the data.
