A scaling which removes bias of Abeywardena’s estimator of repeatability
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.
