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.
