Abstract: The L-moments are analogues of the conventional moments and have similar interpretations. They are calculated using linear combinations of the expectation of ordered data. It was recently shown that L-moments are special case of L-estimators. We propose a generalization of L-moments in the linear regression model based on regression quantiles as special L-estimator. The properties of extended L-moments are illustrated on simulated data.
