As with any other method, linear regression is based on assumptions
which have to be fulfilled for correct results:
These assumptions should be checked by inspecting the data and
the residuals. One should always look at the X-Y plot, at the histogram
of the residuals, and at the residuals
plotted against X_{i}.
