Two Stage Least Absolute Deviations Estimators<689:TSLADE>2.0.CO;2-0
p. 689-712

Takeshi Amemiya

In this paper the method of least absolute deviations is applied to the estimation of the parameters of a structural equation in the simultaneous equations model. A class of estimators called two stage least absolute deviations estimators is defined, their asymptotic properties are derived, and the problem of finding the optimal member of the class is considered.
