5/10/10 Examining Residuals for Consider the following study of the Sugar content vs. the Calorie content of breakfast cereals: There is no obvious departure from the linearity assumption. 2 2

5/10/10 Examining Residuals for The histogram of residuals looks fairly normal… …but the distribution shows signs of being a composite of three groups of cereal types. 3 3

5/10/10 Examining Residuals for 4 4 Examining the residuals of groups… …suggests factors other than sugar content that may be important in determining Calorie content. Puffing: replacing cereal with “air” lowers the Calorie content, even for high-sugar cereals Fat/oil: Fats add to the Calorie content, even for low-sugar cereals Puffed cereals (high air content per serving) Cereals with fruits and/or nuts (high fat/ oil content per serving) All others

5/10/10 Examining Residuals for Conclusion: It may be better to report three regressions, one for puffed cereals, one for high-fat cereals, and one for all others. 5 5
