In regression analysis the use of least squares method would not be appropriate in solving problem containing outlier or extreme observations. So we need a parameter estimation method which is robust where the value of the estimation is not much affected by small changes in the data. In this paper we present M estimation, S estimation and MM estimation in robust regression to determine a regression model. M estimation is an extension of the maximum likelihood method and is a robust estimation, while S estimation and MM estimation are the development of M estimation method. The algorithm of these methods is presented and then we apply them on the maize production data.
Key Words: robust regression, M estimation, S estimation, MM estimation
