Which is stronger: dipole-dipole or dipole-induced dipole?

Question stated above. Also, is there a mathematical way of determining which imf's are stronger?

I may be wrong, but I believe dipole-dipole is stronger, and this can be calculated by finding the dissociation energy of the bond. If it has lower dissociation energy, it has a weaker bond.
