The relationship between measures of vocational
interest, life history data, and two major educational
criteria-performance and number of courses
taken by area-was explored in a university sample
of 1,900 students. Canonical correlation analysis
was used to uncover and to describe the major relationships
between the variable sets. The largest and
most important dimension emerging was a general
academic achievement dimension. Indices of variance
overlap suggested that background data,
rather than vocational interests, exhibited a
stronger relationship with the educational criteria.
