2. Select Analyze > Clustering > Cluster Variables.

3. Select all continuous variables and click Y, Columns.

4. Click OK.

5. Close the Cluster Summary and the Standardized Components reports.

The Cluster Members report shows that there are four variables in Cluster 1. In the Color Map on Correlations, the four-by-four square of cells in the upper left corner that corresponds to these five variables shows a distinct pattern of positive correlations. The color map also shows patterns of positive correlations for the variables in Clusters 2, 4, and 5. The two-by-two square of cells in the lower right corner of the color map that corresponds to the two Cluster 6 variables shows that they are negatively correlated. See Color Map on Correlations.
