Abstract: The paper studies S-weighted estimator - a combination of S-estimator and the Least Weighted Squares. The estimator allows to adjust the properties, namely the level of robustness of estimator in question to the processed data better than the S-estimator or the Least Weighted Squares can do it. The paper offers the proof of its root-consistency and derives the asymptotic representation. Some pattern of results of the simulation study are also included, revealing the topology of data which shows that sometimes the outliers may be more dangerous than the leverage points.
