The Chart will calculate the fit of the data to the trend:

Useful Fit R² > 0.80
Ryx = 0.991
Slope = 3.649
Sigma = 4.265
Probability = 0.444

  • R² gives the fit of the line to the trend. Greater than 0.80 is a good fit.
  • Ryx is the linear correlation coefficient. Compare to probability for df = n - 2.
  • Slope is the positive or negative slope of the trend
  • Sigma is the estimated standard deviation Rbar/d2
  • Probability is critical value for Ryx. If Ryx > Probability then a statistically significant correlation exists.
