|Title||:||The USA Higher Education Institutes Segmentation Using Clustering Technique|
Abstract: The huge quantities of data and information about universities, students, faculty members, personnel, material resources, etc., can in most cases contains valuable information and patterns for higher education. American higher education institutions are usually classified according to indicators such cost including tuition fees, living and educational expenses. Also, the percentage of doctoral students and graduates of each faculty, reflecting the scientific level of the faculty of each university and the availability of facilities such as laboratories, libraries and research centers, can provide significant insights and patterns. In the present research, cluster analysis and K-Means techniques are used to categorize and analyze data related to te mentioned indicators.
