Hi, 

I have a question about the measure options for conducting hierarchical
cluster analysis. I see that there are measures for continuous and
binary variables, but what about ordinal variables? Is there a measure
available in stata that I can use and just can't find? Or should I do
some sort of standardization of the variables? The variables have 4
categories. 

Thank you. 

Bellinda
