    Abstract

    Using multi-dimensional analysis methods, it is possible to uncover a structure representing the relationship between multiple international educational, social and economic indicators. In this study, we applied Smallest Space Analysis to data collected by international agencies for 138 countries and 20 indicators. A preliminary structure was found and replicated for different data sets. This structural interrelationship shows that these various indicators are part of a larger field called welfare. This structure can be further expanded and refined to be used as a tool for indicator selection.
