Chapter 8 Residuals, Residual Plots, & Influential points

Residuals (error) • The vertical deviation between the observations & the LSRL • the sum of the residuals is always zero • error = observed - expected

Residual plot • A scatterplot of the (x, residual) pairs. • Residuals can be graphed against other statistics besides x • Purpose is to tell if a linear association exist between the x & y variables • If no pattern exists between the points in the residual plot, then the association is linear

Linear Not linear

Is there a linear relationship between age & range of motion? Sketch a residual plot. Residuals Age x Since there is no pattern in the residual plot, there is a linear relationship between age and range of motion

Range of Motion 35 154 24 142 40 137 31 133 28 122 25 126 26 135 14 108 20 120 21 127 30 122 Plot the residuals against the yhats. How does this residual plot compare to the previous one? Residuals Age

Residuals x Residual plots are the same no matter if plotted against x or y-hat.

Coefficient of determination • r 2 • gives the proportion of variation in y that can be attributed to an approximate linear relationship between x & y • remains the same no matter which variable is labeled x

Age Range of Motion 35 154 24 142 40 137 31 133 28 122 25 126 Let’s examine r 2. Suppose you were going to predict a future y but you didn’t know the x-value. Your best guess would be the overall mean of the existing y’s. 26 135 Sum of the squared 16 135 residuals (errors) using 14 108 of y. the mean 20 120 21 127 30 122 SSy = 1564. 917

Age Range of Motion 35 154 24 142 40 137 31 133 28 122 25 126 Now suppose you were going to predict a future y but you DO know the x-value. Your best guess would be the point on the LSRL for that x-value (y-hat). 26 Sum of the 135 squared 16 residuals (errors) 135 14 using the LSRL. 108 20 120 21 127 30 122 SSy = 1085. 735

Age Range of Motion 35 154 SSy = 1564. 917 24 142 SSy = 1085. 735 40 137 31 133 28 122 25 126 26 135 16 14 20 By what percent did the sum of the squared error go down when you went from just an “overall mean” model to the “regression on x” model? This is 135 r 2 – the amount of the variation 108 in the y-values that is explained 120 by the x-values. 21 127 30 122

Approximately 30. 6% of the variation in range of motion after knee surgery can be explained by the linear regression of age and range of motion.

Interpretation of 2 r Approximately r 2% of the variation in y can be explained by the LSRL of x & y.

Outlier – • In a regression setting, an outlier is a data point with a large residual

Influential point • A point that influences where the LSRL is located • If removed, it will significantly change the slope of the LSRL

Sketch a scatterplot of these data. Calculate the LSRL & correlation coefficient. Does there appear to be an influential point? If so, remove it and then calculate the new LSRL & correlation coefficient.

(189, 30) could be influential. Remove & recalculate LSRL

(189, 30) was influential since it moved the LSRL

Which of these measures are resistant? • LSRL • Correlation coefficient • Coefficient of determination NONE – all are affected by outliers
