Residual distribution of Total Injury Falls (a) and Total Falls (b), for NDNQI hospitals reported for 3rd quarter, 2007. Residuals were obtained after removing the structural effect on power transformed dependent variable by hospital teaching and Magnet status. Here, the Box-Cox power transformation parameters were obtained with structural effects in the model.
