Abstract: A scale-equivariant and regression-invariant estimator of the variance
of error terms
in the linear regression model is proposed and its consistency proved. The estimator is based on (down)weighting the order
statistics of the squared residuals which corresponds to the consistent and scale- and regression-equivariant
estimator of the regression coefficients. A~small numerical study demonstrating
behaviour of the estimator under the various types of contamination is included.
