Abstract: The definition of Instrumental Weighted Variables (IWV) (which is a robust version of the classical Instrumental Variables) and conditions for the weak consistency as given in the Part I of this paper are recalled. The reasons why the classical Instrumental Variables were introduced as well as the idea of implicit weighting the residuals (firstly employed by the Least Weighted Squares, see Víšek (2000)) are also recalled. Then square root of n-consistency of all solutions of the corresponding normal equations is proved.
