Congratulations on the first edition:… One of the main strengths of this text is that it gathers technical results on agree statistics from a multitude of sources and often provides information on the accuracy of estimates and intervals … This text offers a practical compilation of statistical approaches for interobserver agreements … Biostatistics… Patrick E.

Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis 1978,11, 523-527. Seventeen association measures for observer reliability (Interobserver agreement) are verified and calculation formulas are given in a common scoring system. An empirical comparison of 10 of these measures is made during a number of potential background check results.
