This project is to broadly group ETMs into several clusters based on their date of establishment, name of program, academic base, and type of degrees offered. The nature of cluster analysis does not lend itself to hypothesis testing, but the results can help identify other statistical methods. Chi-Square contingency tables to test independence among pairs of variables may be possible. However, some variables are not mutually exclusive and may have valid inputs in more than one cells.


This project is only available to students, staff, and faculty of Portland State University.
