- TL;DR Summary
- Consider two different data sets whose contexts are not related. One is ploted in a linear graphic and the other in a monolog graphic. Both data sets end up looking the same in each graphic. How (un)reasonable is to proceed to a graphic method of linear regression in a monolog graphic?

Hi All,

Consider two different data sets whose contexts are not related. One is ploted in a linear graphic and the other in a monolog graphic. Both data sets end up looking the same in each graphic. How (un)reasonable is to proceed to a graphic method of linear regression in a monolog graphic?

With respect to the figure below, where the lines were drawn by hand as a visual estimate of the best line to represent the data, is the straight line drawn in the monolog graphic usefull to produce any reliable information? The measurement of distances in a monolog graphic is in general rather different from what we do in linear graphics.

Best wishes,
