Thanks, Ken. Can you cite a specific paper using
cluster analysis with 1 variable with a sample size
<30 that appeared in a peer-reviewed journal?

Thanks,

While cluster analysis is a multivariate technique,
it will work
with a single variable also.  That is no problem.
Having only 21
observations might or might not be a problem.  It
depends on the
data.  After you do your cluster analysis you might
want to look
at some summaries or graphs of the resulting three
groups.
