Identifying anomalous values in the realworld database is important both for improving the quality of original data and for reducing the impact of anomalous values in the process of knowledge discovery in databases. Such anomalous values give useful information to the data analyst in discovering useful patterns. Through isolation, these data may be separated and analyzed. The analysis of outliers and influential points is an important step of the regression diagnostics. In this paper, our aim

If these influential points are to be removed it will lead to a different model. Distinction between these points is not always obvious and clear. Hence several indicators are used for identifying and analyzing outliers. Existing methods of outlier detection are based on manual inspection of graphically represented data. In this paper, we present a new approach in automating the process of detecting and isolating outliers. Impact of anomalous values on the dataset has been established by using two indicators DFFITS and Cook'sD. The process is based on modeling the human perception of exceptional values by using multiple linear regression analysis.
