Thus 55 (51 percent) of the small MSAs had negative residual scores below the average, and 11 (10 percent) had well below average negative scores. 3 Large-­size MSAs The plot of the distribution of the MSA scores on the residuals from the regression (percentage above and below the regression line) for this specific model again revealed no major outliers. The pattern of the MSA scores on the residual scores showed that 27 (62 percent) of the 43 large-­size MSAs had positive residual scores above the average, and 5 (12 percent) had well above average positive scores.
