This chapter provides a review of the field of clustering and classification as applied in the behavioral sciences. The intent is to provide a set of recommendations or best practices in the analysis of empirical data. Clustering and classification methods are presented within a context of exploratory data analysis, as opposed to theory development or confirmation. Some methods or strategies useful for theory confirmation are discussed as appropriate.
