Unless the SHORT option is specified, the ACECLUS procedure displays the following items:

Means and Standard Deviations of the input variables

the matrix, labeled COV: Total Sample Covariances

the name or value of the matrix used for the Initial Within-Cluster Covariance Estimate

the Threshold value if the PROPORTION= option is specified

For each iteration, PROC ACECLUS displays the following items:

the Iteration number

RMS Distance, the root mean square distance between all pairs of observations

the Distance Cutoff for including pairs of observations in the estimate of the within-cluster covariances, which equals the RMS distance times the threshold

the number of Pairs Within Cutoff

the Convergence Measure as specified by the METRIC= option

If the SHORT option is not specified, PROC ACECLUS also displays the matrix, labeled ACE: Approximate Covariance Estimate Within Clusters.

The ACECLUS procedure displays a table of eigenvalues from the canonical analysis containing the following items:

Eigenvalues of Inv(ACE)*(COVACE)

the Difference between successive eigenvalues

the Proportion of variance explained by each eigenvalue

the Cumulative proportion of variance explained

If the SHORT option is not specified, PROC ACECLUS displays the following items:

the Eigenvectors or raw canonical coefficients

the standardized eigenvectors or standard canonical coefficients
