Computes linear discriminant analysis on classified cluster groups, and determines the goodness of classification for each cluster group.

cluster_discrimination(x, cluster_groups = NULL)



A data frame


Group classification of the cluster analysis, which can be retrieved from the cluster_analysis function.
