Often there is the same set of objects however different multi-indicatorsystems available. For instance the multidimensional aspect of poverty of regions on the one side and factors of economical power of these regions on the other side. Hence two partial orders of regions arise. One controlled by poverty and one by economical factors such as innovation potential, level of education, level of technology etc.
Are the two partial orders in conflict to each other, or can a hypothesis derived from the one partial order to explain the other?
The new similarity module of PyHasse is a first attempt to analyse this kind of questions.
