A measure of the dispersion
(scatter) of data points with respect to a curve
of regression. S is the positive square root of the arithmetic
mean of the squares of the deviations from a curve of regression:
where d is deviation from R ; R
is curve of regression; and n is number of points.
</dd>
S is a measure of the variation to be expected in making predictions
from the regression equation. [[/a>|/a>
