I am clustering mixed-type data using hierarchical clustering and the Gower measure. My question is:

Do we have to check for association (dependence) between categorical variables (e.g. using chi-square test) with the same logic as we check for multicollinearity between continuous variables (e.g. through correlation) or this is not relevant here?

Many thanks in advance
