APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • You're running the TWOSTEP CLUSTER procedure in SPSS Statistics
    and observing unusual results in the output Model Viewer, such
    as a much larger number of clusters reported than the number
    specified or reflected in saved cluster memberships.
    

Local fix

  • Check your command syntax for duplicate variable names on the
    CATEGORICAL and/or CONTINUOUS subcommands. We have documented
    such incorrect output results when the same variable is listed
    twice on one of these subcommands, as well as different results
    in the saved cluster memberships. The problem has been reported
    to SPSS Development and will be corrected in a future release.
    We apologize for any resulting inconvenience.
