Graph description: Figure 11. Residual BMI after regression on abdominal and arm circumference and sex, for 202 adults

This is a graph with two panels.

The first panel shows a histogram of residual body mass index with a superimposed Normal curve. The distribution is very slightly skew to the right, but matchs the Normal curve quite closely. The histogram is from –20 to +20 with one slight outlier in cell 25 to 30.

The second panel shows a Normal quantile plot of residual body mass index. The points lie quite close to a straight line, but appear to curve upwards very slightly. There is one outlier with residual 29, the others being between ”16 and +18.
