A method of modifying observed or calculated data to reduce random errors has been devised. It is based on applying standard statistical calculations to sets of first order differences, the sets varying from each other by the length of intervals used. It is suitable for unrepeatable observations, rather than for laboratory experimental results, and for timewise non-cyclical indexes.
