Besides, the standard error of estimate is low (1.551) which shows that the high accuracy of its prediction.
The standard error of estimate is reasonably close to the predictive equation, but there is a better model.

Because this value could not be calculated when r was not significant, we also calculated the "standard error of estimate," the square root of the residuals from the regression line.
Table 1 presents the value of Pearson's r, along with the associated standard error of estimate for each of these bivariate distributions.
The standard error of estimate (sy/x) is a standard deviation that measures the scatter of the observed values around the regression line and sy/x is found to be 0.0068.
