|Scatter Plot Showing Outliers|
The scatter plot here reveals
Outlier detection is important for effective modeling. Outliers should be excluded from such model fitting. If all the data here are included in a linear regression, then the fitted model will be poor virtually everywhere. If the outlier is omitted from the fitting process, then the resulting fit will be excellent almost everywhere (for all points except the outlying point).
