Abstract: Two estimators were recently developed in [1] for the slope of a line in the functional EIV model. Both are unbiased, up to order sigma^4, where sigma is the error standard deviation. One estimator was constructed as a function of the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE). Therefore, it was called Adjusted MLE (AMLE). The second estimator was constructed in a completely different approach. Although both the estimators are unbiased, up to the order sigma^4, the latter estimator is much more accurate than the AMLE. We study here these two estimators more rigorously, and we show why one estimator outperforms the other one.

Keywords: Simple linear regression, Errors-in-Variables models, small-noise model, maximum likelihood estimator, bias correction, mean squared errors.
