The maximum likelihood estimator of the intraclass correlation coefficient ρ in samples of unequal size from a multivariate normal distribution has been derived and compared to several other estimators, using Monte Carlo simulation. It is recommended that maximum likelihood be used if no prior knowledge concerning the value of ρ exists, or if the value of ρ is thought to be high. For low to moderate values of ρ it is recommended that the analysis of variance estimator be used, with those families having only one member deleted from the analysis.
