Un outil pour l’exploitation des graphiques en histoire : la régression linéaire

Abstract : In history, the typical graph associates numerical data, as extracted from archival documents, to a date. This data is always discrete and forms a graph called a dot line. In order to make it easily readable, the dots of that line are linked together in an appropriate way, thus creating a continuous line. This continuous line brings to the fore clear tendencies, but cannot be described with precision, since it is not « defined » with precision. To describe this graph more precisely, the statistical tool of « linear regression » is used.
