Abstract : The open problem of establishing an accurate adjustment formula for the Brogden (1959) table used in estimating assignment benefits is solved by taking a distribution-theoretic approach in the case of equally correlated jobs. This approach establishes a more sound adjustment formula which provides more accurate results than the formula provided by Alley & Darby (1994). Implications for the use of the adjusted table in the case of correlated jobs is discussed.
