Abstract:The final essay suggests a robust alternative to Seemingly Unrelated Regression (SUR) for two equations. This simultaneous equation median regression estimator is investigated using Monte Carlo simulations. Simulation results support the conjecture that this estimator is unbiased, Normally distributed, and more efficient than single equation median regression. In cases of t 3 and heteroskedastic errors, it is also more efficient than SUR. These conjectures are further supported with an empirical example using data from the second essay.
