Hi There

SAS has a VARCLUS procedure (Variable Cluster Analysis) 'to divide a set of
variables into nonoverlapping clusters in such a way that each cluster can
be interpreted as essentially unidimensional' (Source: SAS documentation).
Is there a similar command in STATA that can perform similar analysis. With
the existing clustering methods, I can group the variables (after
transposing observations into variables) using 'generate' command but the
standard output from VARCLUS procedure seems easier to interpret.

Thanks in advance.
