The angle-averaged effective analyzing powers, over(A, -)c, for proton-carbon inclusive scattering were measured as a function of the kinetic energy of protons in a double scattering experiment. The measurements were performed in the kinetic energy range of 44.8-136.5 MeV at the center of 1-5 cm thick graphite analyzers using a polarized proton beam on a CH2 film or liquid hydrogen serving as target for the primary scattering. These data can be used for measuring the polarization of protons emerging from other reactions such as H ( over(d, ⇒), over(p, ⇒) ) d.
