Mayo and Gray introduced the leverage residual-weighted elemental (LRWE) classification of regression estimators and a new method of estimation called trimmed elemental estimation (TEE), showing the efficiency and robustness of TEE point estimates. Using bootstrap methods, properties of various trimmed elemental estimator interval estimates to allow for inference are examined and estimates with ordinary least squares (OLS) and least sum of absolute values (LAV) are compared. Confidence intervals and coverage probabilities for the estimators using a variety of error distributions, sample sizes, and number of parameters are examined. To reduce computational intensity, randomly selecting elemental subsets to calculate the parameter estimates were investigated. For the distributions considered, randomly selecting 50% of the elemental regressions led to highly accurate estimates.
