The 1963-1965 evaluation in the Pensacola Thousand Aviator Study was the third follow-up examination in a longitudinal study of 1056 Naval aviators. The original study was carried out in 1940, and subsequent examinations were performed in 1951 and 1957. During the 1963 examination, a large body of physiological, psychological and personal history data was collected on 675 surviving members of the original population. Because of the magnitude and diversity of this information, an over-all view of distributions and interrelationships seems necessary for 1 providing assistance in understanding the findings of the study, and 2 indicating possible areas of further research by facilitating the discovery of relationships not otherwise apparent. This report describes in detail the distributions and intercorrelations of 100 variables selected from the measures obtained during the 1963 follow-up examination. Data are presented in the form of descriptive statistics, frequency histograms, and Pearson correlation coefficients. Comments deal exclusively with statistical considerations, and no interpretations are attempted.
