{title:Description}
{pstd}{cmd:ari} takes a pair of unlabelled classifications (e.g., two
cluster solutions) and returns the Adjusted Rand Index, which has a
maximum of 1 for perfect agreement, and where zero means no relationship. Returns r(ari).

{p} The permutation test tests against the null hypothesis that the
classifications are independent. It returns r(arip), which is the
probability of observing an ARI this high or higher if the null is true,
and r(arip95), the 95 percentile of the permuted ARIs. {p_end}
