Presented by

Anna Foard, Velocity Group | Andy Kriebel, The Data School | Eva Murray, Exasol

About this talk

In this webinar we dive into the purpose of a regression line and some basic rules of thumb on how to gauge if the regression line is a good fit for the goals of the dataset. Specifically, we will discuss how to interpret Tableau output for trend line coefficients, correlation and R-squared values for linear and nonlinear datasets while keeping your ultimate business goals in mind.

Makeover Monday is a hugely popular social data project linking hundreds of members from the global data viz community in an effort to create better charts and more useful data stories. Every week, Andy and Eva share a publicly available viz and dataset with the community. Participants then retell the story more effectively, find new insights and practice data analysis and visualization. The global community that has formed through this project consists of members from many different backgrounds and professional organisations who support each other in their learning process and share their knowledge and skills generously to contribute to the success of Makeover Monday.
