Abstract

Forty-eight randomly selected age-related human biological functions were analyzed in order to establish whether or not their (linear) regressions were modified by age-related standard errors. Possible reasons for this are advanced. Statistically significant multiple regressions were obtained in 25%, and 21% of the functions yielded statistically significant changes in the correlations between data and age when partial correlation coefficients were calculated. The conclusion is that age-related data need to be subjected to the above tests in order to minimize confounding factors.
