### Abstract

Consider the model (1.6), whereE ij (j=1, ...,N i,i=1,2,...) are i.i.d. with mean 0 and variance 1. Introduce a randomly weighted estimateβ n defined by (1.8). Assuminge 11 ∼N(0, 1) andN i ≥ 6, the paper gives a necessary and sufficient condition forβ n to be a consistent estimate ofβ 0, and under some further restrictions a normal approximation foβ n is established which can be used in constructing a large sample confidence interval ofβ 0. Finally, in the non-normal case a theorem about the consistency ofβ n is proved.
