In this study, the aim was to review the methods of parametric and non-parametric analyses in simple linear regression model.The least squares estimator (LSE) in parametric analysis of the model, and Mood-Brown and Theil-Sen methods that estimatesthe parameters according to the median value in non-parametric analysis of the model are introduced. Also, various weights ofTheil-Sen method are examined and estimators are discussed. In an attempt to show the need for non-parametric methods,results are evaluated based on real life data.
