Using the Benjamini and Hochberg method to detect outliers in the second example. A P value was determined for each point by computing a t ratio by dividing its residual by the RSDR, and computing a two-tailed P value from the t distribution. The P values are shown plotted against their rank. The dashed line shows what you'd expect to see if the P values are randomly scattered between 0 and 1. All the points are near this line, and none are below the solid Q = 1% threshold line. Therefore none of the points are defined to be outliers.
