Abstract

A frequent variety of typology is that which results when a given population is classified simultaneously by several criteria, the categories of each criterion being ordered in a sense common to all the criteria. Such simultaneous orderings automatically define a partial order typology.The empirical problem is to ascertain the dimensionality and the substantive meaning of the partial order. This is illustrated here by characterization of the Jewish population of Israel by the frequencies of use of a variety of drugs. The data analysis approach adopted is that of Partial Order Structuple (Scalogram) Analysis (POSA). The particular computer program used is POSAC (POSA with Base Coordinates).
