**Correlations:**This analysis finds which pairs of metrics are representing equivalent facets of the datasets. We obtain the Pearson correlation coefficient. The score is in the range [-1,1]**.**

- Perfect correlations: -1 (negative), and 1 (positive)
**Stability:**This analysis permits to estimate whether the clustering is meaningfully affected by small variations in the data [1]. The stability index is the mean of the Jaccard coefficient [2] values of 1000 bootstrap replicates. The values are in the range [0,1], having the following meaning:

- Unstable: [0, 0.60[
- Doubtful: [0.60, 0.75]
- Stable: ]0.75, 0.85]
- Highly Stable: ]0.85, 1]
**Goodness of classifications:**The goodness of the classifications are assessed by validating the clusters generated. For this purpose, we use the Silhouette width as validity index. Kaufman and Rousseeuw [3] suggested the interpretation of the global Silhouette width score as the effectiveness of the clustering structure. The values are in the range [0,1], having the following meaning:- There is no substantial clustering structure: [-1, 0.25].
- The clustering structure is weak and could be artificial: ]0.25, 0.50].
- There is a reasonable clustering structure: ]0.50, 0.70].
- A strong clustering structure has been found: ]0.70, 1].
