We present an entropy conservation principle applicable to either discrete or continuous variables which provides a useful tool for aggregating observations. The associated method of modality grouping transforms a variable Z1 into a new variable Z2 such that the mutual information I (Z2, Y) between Y, a variable of interest, and Z2 is equal to I (Z1, Y).
