One-Mode Three-Way Analysis Based on Result of One-Mode Two-Way Analysis

Conference paper
Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


Several analysis models for proximity data have been introduced. While most of them were for one-mode two-way data, some analysis models which are able to analyze one-mode three-way data have been suggested in recent years. One-mode three-way multidimensional scaling and overlapping cluster analysis models were suggested. Furthermore, several studies were done for comparison between the results of analyses by one-mode two-way and by one-mode three-way data, where both of them are generated from the same source of data. In the present study, the authors suggest the analysis of one-mode three-way data based on one-mode two-way analysis for overlapping clusters. To evaluate the necessity of one-mode three-way analysis, firstly one-mode three-way data are reconstructed from the clusters and weights obtained by one-mode two-way overlapping cluster analysis. Secondly the reconstructed one-mode three-way data are subtracted from original one-mode three-way data. The subtracted data were analyzed by one-mode three-way overlapping cluster analysis model. The result of analysis discloses the components of proximities which can be expressed by one-mode three-way analysis but not by one-mode two-way analysis.
