We present estimates of the N-point galaxy area-averaged angular correlation functions N(θ) for N = 2, ... ,7 from the third data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The sample was selected from galaxies with 18 ≤ r 1 h-1 Mpc), we find that the SN for late-type galaxies are lower than for early types, implying a significant difference between their higher order bias. We find b1,early = 1.36 ± 0.04, c2,early = 0.30 ± 0.10, b1,late = 0.81 ± 0.03, and c2,late = -0.70 ± 0.08. Our…
