  K-modes clustering was originally developed by Anil Chaturvedi, Paul Green and me in 1994, but, for various reasons, not published until 2001.  K-modes indeed is the optimal procedure to use for the problem of clustering categorical data you describe.  The reference for our paper is:

Chaturvedi, A.D.,  Green, P.E. & Carroll, J.D. (2001).  K-modes clustering.  Journal of Classification, 18, 35-56.

  Hello,
 
I'd like to cluster categorical data (3 categories) by means of a partitioning 
method; I'm quite a beginner in that field and I would need to be enlightened.
From a bibliographic review I carried out about that topic, it appeared to me 
that a method is often used :the k-modes method. From her/his experience, 
could anyone confirm or deny that it is the case ? If denied, which method 
could be more "powerful" ?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards.
