We analyzed the Family Relations Test protocols of 197 11-year-old boys with respect to the dimension of “most-mentioned family member” and of 141 of these boys with respect to “choice of sibling”. The sample was drawn from boys referred for school problems. The results show that (a) the mean and frequency methods of calculating the most-mentioned family member do not differ greatly; however, the latter is to be preferred on grounds of greater psychological meaning; (b) in this sample of referred boys, a sibling is the most-mentioned family member; (c) there is a significant difference between the mean number of items given to mother and father by 11-year-old boys in the referred group as compared with a normative group; (d) participants from small families are not more involved with their parents than are participants from large families; (e) boys from large families do not give more items to their next oldest and/or their next youngest siblings as compared with siblings in other ordinal positions.
