In many practical situations, it is important to know the correlation between different quantities -- finding correlations helps find the causes of different phenomena, and helps to find way to improve the situation. Often, there is not enough empirical data to experimentally determine all possible correlation. In such cases, a natural idea is to supplement this situation with expert estimates. Expert estimates are rather crude. So, to decide whether to act based on these estimates, it is desirable to know how accurate are expert estimates. In this paper, we propose several techniques for gauging this accuracy.
