Yeah, I'm not enough of a statistician to know if there's a problem with my calculation method that's causing inaccuracy, or if I'm supposed to be using a different formula entirely. I know a lot of the HPs with accumulated stats just transform x and/or y on the fly as you enter them, so I'm not sure what else I'd have to do. I'll have to crack open my old stats 215 textbook later and see what it says about curve fitting. EDIT: Running a linear regression on a list of transformed ln(x) values gives me the same value for r as doing logarithmic regression on the original x values, at least with the 36X Pro. So I assume the formula is the same, but something must be clobbering numeric accuracy along the way. Hmm...
