This note discusses the use and utility of the reliability concept in social and behavioral research. The focus is on the meaning and limitations of the classical test theory reliability coefficient. Conditions are examined under which reliability is a meaningful notion, and the amount of information it can provide then. Issues pertaining to limitations of the practice of social and behavioral measurement and its implications for indices of measurement accuracy are subsequently discussed.
