The OVRO 40 m Telescope monitoring program carries out twice-weekly measurements of the 15 GHz flux density of nearly 1600 blazars and other AGN, including all those associated with northern (declination > −20°) Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) detections and a preselected sample ideal for statistical studies. We present some results from the program and describe the statistical method we have developed to assess the intrinsic radio variability of the sources in our sample. We also present a method for assessing the significance of correlations between radio and gamma-ray light curves.
