Asymptotic Normality of a Simple Linear Ev Regression Model With Martingale Di Erence Errors

Guo-Liang Fan, Tian-Heng Chen

This paper considers the estimation of a linear EV (errors-in-variables) regression model under martingale difference errors. The usual least squares estimations lead to biased estimators of the unknown parametric when measurement errors are ignored. By correcting the attenuation we propose a modified least squares estimator for a parametric component and construct the estimators of another parameter component and error variance. The asymptotic normalities are also obtained for these estimators. The simulation study indicates that the modified least squares method performs better than the usual least squares method.
