We present results obtained from processing large photometric data base. We make use of low-precision (generally rounded to 0.1 mag) and low-accuracy (rms magnitude uncertainties of ±0.2 to 0.3 mag) data obtained from the Minor Planet Center and modifed at Lowell Observatory. We explore frst correlations between slope parameter(s) and albedo, and second distributions of slope parameter(s) in asteroid families and taxa.
