The residual calculator calculates the residual of the independent variable (X) and dependent variable (Y) on the basis of linear regression.

The online residual point calculator can evaluate the error in the regression analysis.

The regression residual is the difference between the observed and predicted values in the regression model of the dataset.

The residual calculator provides accuracy and precision of the estimated results.

Actually, the residual find the margin of error of the dataset values by drawing the difference between the actual and forecasted values.

The formula for the residual in statistics is given below:

**Where:**

Observed value = The actual values of the variable

Predicted value = The expected values of the variable

The residual graph calculators make sure what is the variance and the drift in the statistical data.

Now understand the concept of the residual by the practical example:

Let’s suppose there is a set of independent variables 1, 13, 5, 7, 9 and dependent variables 2, 4, 6, 18, and 10. Now the residuals for each observation in a simple linear regression model are given below:

The data set values for the dependent and independent variables are:

Obs. |
X |
Y |

1 | 1 | 2 |

2 | 13 | 4 |

3 | 5 | 6 |

4 | 7 | 18 |

5 | 9 | 10 |

Now, construct the estimated regression coefficient using the values of the predicted and response variables:

Obs. |
X |
Y |
Xᵢ² |
Yᵢ² |
Xᵢ · Yᵢ |

1 | 1 | 2 | 1 | 4 | 2 |

2 | 13 | 4 | 169 | 16 | 52 |

3 | 5 | 6 | 25 | 36 | 30 |

4 | 7 | 18 | 49 | 324 | 126 |

5 | 9 | 10 | 81 | 100 | 90 |

Sum = |
35 |
40 |
325 |
480 |
300 |

The sum of the square generated from the above table are:

\(SS_{XX} = \sum^n_{i-1}X_i^2 – \dfrac{1}{n} \left(\sum^n_{i-1}X_i \right)^2\)

Now by step by step-by-step calculation:

= 80

\(SS_{YY} = \sum^n_{i-1}Y_i^2 – \dfrac{1}{n} \left(\sum^n_{i-1}Y_i \right)^2\)

= 160

\(SS_{XY} = \sum^n_{i-1}X_iY_i – \dfrac{1}{n} \left(\sum^n_{i-1}X_i \right) \left(\sum^n_{i-1}Y_i \right\)

= 20

\(hat{\beta}_1 = \dfrac{SS_{XY}}{SS_{XX}}\)

\(= \dfrac{20}{80}\)

\(= 0.25\)

\(hat{\beta}_0 = \bar{Y} – \hat{\beta}_1 \times \bar{X}\)

\(= 6.25\)

\(hat{Y} = 6.25 + 0.25X\)

After finding the regression equation, we can gather the predicted values by inserting the independent variable in the regression equation.

\(hat{Y} = 6.25 + 0.25X\)

The predicted and residual values are given in the table below:

Obs. |
X |
Y |
Predicted Values |
Residuals value=(Y-P.V) |

1 | 1 | 2 | 6.25 + 0.25 × 1 = 6.5 | 2 – 6.5 = -4.5 |

2 | 13 | 4 | 6.25 + 0.25 × 13 = 9.5 | 4 – 9.5 = -5.5 |

3 | 5 | 6 | 6.25 + 0.25 × 5 = 7.5 | 6 – 7.5 = -1.5 |

4 | 7 | 18 | 6.25 + 0.25 × 7 = 8 | 18 – 8 = 10 |

5 | 9 | 10 | 6.25 + 0.25 × 9 = 8.5 | 10 – 8.5 = 1.5 |

The online statistics residual calculator requires the values of the “X” and “Y” variables:

Let’s find out how!

**Input:**

- Enter the dependent and independent variables
- Tap
**C****alculate**

**Output:**

- The regression residual
- Step by Step calculations

The residual values are a good way to know the quality of the sample data. The main reason is that you are comparing the actual values with the expected values of certain phenomena. The online statistics residuals calculator increases the quality of the regression analysis.
