The interrelationships between a selection of diagnostic and demographic measures of schizophrenic clinical status and a selection of cognitive-deficit indices were assessed using canonical correlation and redundancy analyses. Two highly significant canonical correlations emerged; however, the redundancy analyses each set of measures relative to the opposite set was only moderate. The structure of the significant canonical correlations was unique relative to past findings inasmuch as cognitive efficiency in the form of semantic abstracting ability was associated with nonparanoid rather than paranoid symptomatology. The result was qualified according to the behaviors of other contributors to this dimension and relevant characteristics of the present sample.
