Clustering algorithms are now in widespread use for sorting heterogeneous data into homogeneous blocks. If the data consist of a number of variables taking values over a number of cases, these algorithms may be used either to construct clusters of variables (using, say, correlation as a measure of distance between variables) or clusters of cases. This article presents a model, and a technique, for clustering cases and variables simultaneously. The principal advantage in this approach is the direct interpretation of the clusters on the data.
