The theory of multidimensional scaling is explained and the operation of a multidimensional scaling program (KYST) is examined under different input data forms and program control constraints. Using data collected from economists on the faculty of the Naval Postgraduate School, individual and aggregate configurations of their perceptions of economic subjects are obtained through multidimensional scaling of pairwise comparison data and are interpreted. A theory of non-interpretable dimensions is developed, and an application of multidimensional scaling as a technique for performance evaluation is suggested.
