I want to calculate the cophenetic correlation coefficient. Reading previous posts
I used the
cophenetic function in the package
As far as I understand the results are cophenetic distances for the hierarchical clustering, in a new object of class
To have an overview I clustered the cophenetic matrix, and I obtained the same clustering as the one performed on my dataset.
However, I wanted to have a unique value that indicates the fidelity with which my clustering represents my distance matrix. Therefore, I correlated the
dis_matrix_for_my_dataset with the
Am I understanding right that the value I obtain indicates the cophenetic correlation coefficient?
