In statistics, residuals are the deviations predicted from actual empirical values of any given set of data. The difference between the observed value of the dependent variable and the predicted value is called the residual. Each data point has one residual. Both the sum and the mean of the residuals are equal to zero. The residual sum of squares (RSS), also known as the sum of squared residuals (SSR) or the sum of squared errors of prediction (SSE). Residuals are used to determine how accurate the given mathematical functions are, such as a line, is in representing a set of data. You can easily use this Residual Sum of Squares Calculator to calculate for the deviations in the given set of data.
