Structural comparison (i.e., the simultaneous analysis of multiple structures) is a problem which arises frequently in such diverse arenas as the study of organizational forms, social network analysis, and automated text analysis. Prior work has demonstrated the applicability of a range of standard multivariate analysis procedures to the structural comparison problem. Here, some simple algorithms are provided which elucidate several of these methods in an easily implemented form.
