Okun's Law

I've plotted the change in unemployment and the change in real GDP since 1947 then used a linear regression to plot the trend line.  It looks like the natural rate of unemployment is 5%.  But this graph definitely shows that there's a negative relationship between unemployment and growth.  I'm not sure if I fully understand what I've done here.
