A large body of data has been accumulated in a continuing epidemiological study of naval aviators. It was necessary to explore methods which would allow expression of important relationships which could be investigated furthur. An IBM 1620 computer has been used to construct a large matrix of correlation coefficients for this purpose. The relationships among data from three examinations conducted over a period of years on a group of healthy young men are presented in the form of correlation coefficients. A correlation matrix of 106 continuous variables is recorded as a reference for other investigators. Pertinent statistical considerations are outlined and briefly discussed.
