Two discriminant analysis methods, the WHIDD analysis and the weighted G analysis are compared, using dichotomized clinical data from Max-Planck-Institute for Psychiatry in Munich. Both methods are based on the weighted G index of agreement. The methods were used in a serial discrimination manner for the assignment of persons into four preestablished clinical subgroups. The two methods gave rather similar results.
