    Re: Linear regression and other tools

    Sure - I agree that the data will change depending on the declamation.
    But how would that affect the regression calculations - it would affect
    the resulting 2nd order curve coefficients but the calculations would
    remain the same - true ???  The accuracy or the resulting average would
    also be affected - if, in fact, the curve is of higher order than 2, the
    error of the average would be expected to be larger.
