Abstract : The pushback estimates are defined by a preliminary data modification followed by the application of a robust statistic to the modified data. The form of the pushback estimate depends upon the choice of a scale estimate for the original data, a set of central values of order statistics, and a constant multiplier. Particular forms of the pushback estimates are both simple and perform rather well relative to a good estimate in the W-estimate or M-estimate category. (Author)
