Bus/Financial / statistical graph
 English term or phrase: residual + in a regression of Description of a graph, where "y" is equity market capitalization to GDP, and "x" is openness of a country to trade multiplied by its industrialization: "In drawing this graph, we have adjusted for the obvious relationship that more industrialized countries should have larger equity markets. So we plot the residual (in a regression of the total equity market capitalization to GDP against a constant and an index of industrialization for the country in 1913) against the product of industralization and openness". To what can "residual" refer here? And what is the meaning of "in regression of"? Could it mean "instead of" or is it the statistical term? Thank you in advance for any suggestion.

Definitiosn of RESIDUAL
The \"error\" left over after a statistical model is fit to a sample of data. In a regression analysis, the residuals are the differences between the observed values and the values that are predicted by the regression model. Specifically, they are the deviations from the regression line. In a oneway analysis of variance, the residuals are the observed values minus the mean of the samples from which the observations come. Analysis of residuals is an important step in any analysis since the residuals are assumed to be normally and independently distributed with constant variance. Plots of residuals are often the best way to see if the data violates these assumptions. When interpreting residuals, it is often desirable to refer to Studentized residuals because the magnitudes are easier to judge.

residual = the rest after adjusting/

Explanation:
In the sentence before residual they speak about the adjustment. The residual is what comes out after the correction.

econometric summary below

Explanation:
The equation:

C/GDP = a + bXI + e

where C = level of capitalization
GDP= gross national product
X = some measure of openess
I = some measure of industrialization

and where a = a constant
b = index of industrialization
e = residual term

The terms a and b are estimated constants. The term e is the remainder described below.

What is plotted:
Along the y-axis: e = C/GDP - (a + bXI)
Along the x-axis: XI

One plots e against XI in search of a random pattern. If the pattern that results is not random, then there is something wrong with the way in which the equation was specified.

The entire passage is quite clear, if you have been well trained in econometrics. Should you have any further question, please feel free to email me.
