We have expanded the number of similarity measures that our Binary Similarity Calculator computes from 30 to 72 (and counting…)

Same measures with different names have been consolidated into a single record, and different measures with same name have been enumerated as necessary.

These similarity coefficients have many applications across disciplines: from bioinformatics to chemistry, chemometrics, statistics, data mining, information retrieval, marketing research, etc.

The tool is available at


We have also included the new similarity measures proposed by Consonni & Todeschini (2012), and Todeschini, et al (2012).

Our Tutorial on Distance and Similarity was also updated, accordingly. Check it out at
