Since every individual demonstrates their own unique pattern of
development, utilizing maturational rather than chronologic age
significantly reduces variability within the data. It is very common
for two or more individuals to demonstrate widely varying patterns
of development even though they are of the same chronologic age.
The following example demonstrates the same data being
oriented both chronologically and maturationally and illustrates
this very important point. The maturationally organized data
demonstrates significantly less variability.
