Given a set of arbitrary numbers, what is a practical procedure for grouping them so that the variance within groups is minimized? An answer to this question, including a description of an automatic computer program, is given for problems up to the size where 200 numbers are to be placed in 10 groups. Two basic types of problem are discussed and illustrated.
