A suitable multivariate method is described for the periodic observations of a group of individuals having comparable periods and amplitudes. Simultaneous confidence region can be obtained for the parameters of the group as a whole instead of an individual. The study of periodic behaviour of a group is more realistic than the study of the behaviour of an individual. An application of human leucocyte counts in microfilariasis (W. bancrofti) infection has been described.
