Hi all,

I want to conduct a cluster analysis with quantitative variables.
More precisely, it concerns binary and  non-ordered categorical 
variables. For such data, various
similarity measures have been proposed, such as the Jaccard index or the 
simple matching index.

So, is there a package such as mva or multiv in the case of quantitative 
Could you indicate me  reviews,  papers or technical reports dealing 
with this problem?
