The method of least squares is a standard approach in regression analysis to approximate the solution of overdetermined systems (sets of equations in which there are more equations than unknowns) by minimizing the sum of the squares of the residuals made in the results of every single equation.. The most important application is in data best fit in the least-squares sense minimizes.   This video describes the benefit of using Least Squares Estimators, as a method to estimate population parameters.

This video outlines the conditions which are required for Ordinary Least Squares estimators to be consistent, and behave 'normally' in the asymptotic limit. Check out . Downloadable! The aim of this work is to investigate the asymptotic properties of weighted least squares (WLS) estimation for causal and invertible periodic autoregressive moving average (PARMA) models with uncorrelated but dependent errors. Under mild assumptions, it is shown that the WLS estimators of PARMA models are strongly consistent and asymptotically normal.

This Lecture Note deals with asymptotic properties, i.e. weak and strong consistency and asymptotic normality, of parameter estimators of nonlinear regression models and nonlinear structural equations under various assumptions on the distribution of the data.

This paper derives the asymptotic distribution of the weighted least squares estimator (WLSE) in a heteroscedastic linear regression model.

A consistent estimator of the asymptotic covariance matrix of the WLSE is also obtained. The results are obtained under weak conditions on the design matrix and some moment conditions on the error by: on the use of auxiliary data and a formal derivation of the asymptotic properties of the underlying Weighted Least Squares estimator.
