Resumo: Symbolic Data Analysis can be defined as the extension of standard data analysis to more complex data tables. We illustrate the application of the Ascendant Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (AHCA) to a symbolic data set (with a known structure) in the field of the automobile industry (car data set), in which objects are described by variables whose values are intervals of the real data set (interval variables). The AHCA of thirty-three car models, described by eight interval variables (with different scales of measure), was based on the standardized weighted generalized affinity coefficient, by the method of Wald and Wolfowitz. We applied three probabilistic aggregation criteria in the scope of the VL methodology (V for Validity, L for Linkage). Moreover, we compare the achieved results with those obtained by other authors, and with a priori partition into four clusters defined by the category (Utilitarian, Berlina, Sporting and Luxury) to which the car belong. We used the global statistics of levels (STAT) to evaluate the obtained partitions.
