 May 17 comment Histogram with skewed data Thanks for the ideas. I'm just doing this somewhat manually in Excel. I'm more concerned that if I vary the bin width, then visually, on first perceptions it appears as though some areas are more dense than they really are, simply because it contains more points. Thinking I might just split this particular data into two groups and deal with it that way.

I have finally worked through your solution and arrived as a $\pm$ value. See my updated question as I still have some queries I am uncertain of. Apr 24 revised Finding uncertainty in the slope/intercept for a non-linear least squares fit Provided better data for the table, clarified some of the algebra letters, and provided an update. Apr 19 comment Finding uncertainty in the slope/intercept for a non-linear least squares fit Thanks for that. Just wanted to check that in your last equation you intended $\hat\sigma$ and not $\hat\sigma^2$. So $\hat\sigma$ is $\sqrt{\hat\sigma^2}$ Apr 18 comment Finding uncertainty in the slope/intercept for a non-linear least squares fit Thanks for that. I'm not familiar with the notation, but it's making some sense. Wondering though, what is $\hat\sigma$ Apr 18 asked Finding uncertainty in the slope/intercept for a non-linear least squares fit Apr 8 comment Finding points along a plot in Matlab @macydanim: One more small question. What would I need in order to match a polynomial to it instead of finding a straight-line match?
