Abstract: Socio-econornic, educational, and political data of the 67 Florida counties are examined. First the data are factor analyzed to identify common underlying dimensions, Next, a distance measure was used to set up a matrix of interprofile similarities to be factor analyzed to give types of counties. Thirteen meaningful factors could be substituted for the 74 variables. On transposed analysis, seven type factors were found for the Florida counties.
