Abstract

Location segments for U.S. cotton production are identified using results from factor analysis and subsequent cluster analysis. Summated scales from the factor analysis are used in hierarchical and non-hierarchical cluster analysis of 16 U.S. cotton producing states. Results for the clusters are reported and are found to compare well with the traditional four cotton producing U.S. regions, the Southeast, Mid-south or Delta, Southwest / or Southern Plains, and West.
