VCE Together Year 12 Determining the Best Transformation

Back to other subjects

Determining the Best Transformation

Determining the Best Transformation is a part of the VCE Further Maths topic Data Analysis. It is part of the subtopic Investigating and Modelling Linear Associations. In this post, we look at which transformation will result in the most accurate and readable data. We may consider a log transformation if the data has poor residuals. If our data is not normally distributed, we may consider a square root transformation.
