This report describes a computer program to calculate means, standard deviations, correlation coefficients and the associated t values and significance levels. Such computations can be done for a maximum of 140 variables. It is necessary that variables treated in this manner be continuous (i.e., sequential) in nature. For discrete (i.e., non-continuous) variables to which the above analysis does not apply, frequency distributions (i.e., counts) and chi square values can be obtained. These computations can be done for a maximum of 115 discrete variables. There is, at present, no provision for any correlation between continuous and discrete variables. This means, in effect, that biserial, triserial, etc., correlation cannot be done. The program requires a 1410 or 7010 computer with at least 60,000 positions of core storage and seven magnetic tape units. If more core storage is available, the number of variables that can be processed may be increased. With the exception of three Autocoder subroutines, the program is written entirely in Fortran IV. This will facilitate modification for use on other computers.
