Abstract:

This report examines a general method to estimate the correlation of variables in a large, diverse population from a smaller, selected population in which the ranges of the variables have been restricted. All correlation coefficients are corrected simultaneously, so that an entire correlation matrix can be corrected. Alternate methods are compared. The effectiveness of the method is tested, and an example is given. Author
