A method is presented, which ensures that different polarization observables describing one reaction channel are consistent with each other. Using the connection of the observables to the same underlying reaction amplitudes, a constrained estimate of the observables is carried out using a Markov Chain Monte Carlo method. Initial results indicate that the new estimates are guaranteed to be physical, and will remove the need for artificial fudge factors when these processed data are used in subsequent fits.
