From left to right, bias in the slope as a function of the magnitude cut, input slope, number of stars in the science field, and intrinsic scatter for the symmetrical methods: the bisector method in the top four panels, the geometric mean method in the middle panels, and the orthogonal regression method in the bottom panels. The black, red and blue lines represent the results for the 5000 realizations of Sets 1, 2 and 3, respectively. The error bars correspond to the 1-σ dispersion in the results.
