The investigation also aims at finding out the correlations among the component variables mentioned above. The study was done on 70 students, out of which 35 were married and 35 unmarried and was selected using stratified sampling method. 'General Adjustment Inventory' and 'Study of Values' were given to assess the variables. Statistical techniques like Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Method and t-test were used. Pearson Product-Moment correlation results of the study indicated marked relationship between a few of the sub-variables of values and adjustment.
