The problem of consistent estimation of the regression coefficients when some prior information about the regression coefficients is available is considered. Such prior information is expressed in the form of exact linear restrictions. The knowledge of covariance matrix of measurement errors that is associated with explanatory variables is used to construct… (More)
The coefficient of determination (R 2) is used for judging the goodness of fit in a linear regression model. It gives valid results only when the observations are correctly observed without any measurement error. The R 2 provides invalid results in the presence of measurement errors in the data in the sense that sample R 2 becomes an inconsistent estimator… (More)

The risk of the family of feasible generalized double k-class estimators under LINEX loss function is derived in a linear regression model. The disturbances are assumed to be non-spherical and their variance covariance matrix is unknown.
