# Homoscedasticity issues? And how to solve this?

Based on the plots attached. Do i have any issues with the homoscedasticity assumption? It looks like the dots on the scatterplot are spread but there is some sort of downward trend. Is this causing any problems? If yes, how do i solve this in SPSS?

• You have just 5 distinct observed values of the response.Is a linear regression suitable for your data? But there isn't a trend. That is just an illusion arising from each distinct observed value lying on a line residual = observed $-$ predicted. – Nick Cox Nov 20 '20 at 0:32
