Within Cluster Sum of Squares

Hi,

Apologies if this has been referenced elsewhere, I have searched but the answer has eluded me.

Is it possible to get sas to display a value for the WSS?

All the searches have done only reference it in terms of minimising it for a k-means cluster in ther FASTCLUS proceedure.

In the CLUSTER proceedure, a value for the BSS can be displayed, so was wondering if a set of options can be used to display the WSS as well?

Many Thanks in advance,.

Hi,


I used proc cluster data = mydata  method=ward nonorm ;

Which displayed the Between Cluster Sum of Squares value in the html output.   I want to the same sort of thing, but displaying the Within Cluster Sum of Squares
