An expression for the correlation between the random number of epileptic and healthy children in family whose size follows a size-biased Modified Power Series Distribution (SBMPSD) is obtained and illustrated. As special cases, results are extracted for size biased Modified Negative Binomial Distribution (SBGNBD), size biased Modified Poisson Distribution (SBGPD) and size biased Modified Logarithmic Series Distribution (SBGLSD).
