    • Abstract


      Abeywardena’s (J,Genetics, 61, 27–51, 1972) estimator of repeatability was shown to be biased, using both the theoretical model for the dependence structure of a repeatability data set and analyses of his simulated data. A scaling involving the number of observations per individual corrected the bias.
