Abstract : In this paper, we introduce a fuzzy extension of the Rand index, a well-known measure for comparing two clustering structures. In contrast to an existing proposal, which is restricted to the comparison of a fuzzy partition with a non-fuzzy reference partition, our extension is able to compare two proper fuzzy partitions with each other. Elaborating on the formal properties of our fuzzy Rand index, we show that it exhibits desirable metrical properties.
