Synopsis: The present study is a replication, verification, and extension of the Hodges & Wotring (2000) study, in which a five-cluster typology had been developed based on a sample of youths referred to Community Mental Health Service Providers in Michigan (n = 4,578). Cluster analysis was conducted on the eight subscales of the CAFAS using data gathered from youths receiving mental health services in California (n = 4,098). External variables were utilized to examine the reliability and the validity of the classification system derived. Three clusters (Adjustment Problems with Impairment/Secondary Prevention, Substance Users/Externalizers, and Marked/School Problems) were replicated, and two clusters (Delinquent/Comorbid and Medicated, and Internalizing Problems) were not replicated. Further discussion of the stability and validity of cluster solutions is included.
