Abstract: A maxbias curve is a powerful tool to describe the robustness of an estimator. It tells us how much an estimator can change due to a given fraction of contamination. In this paper, maxbias curves are computed for some univariate location estimators based on subranges: midranges, trimmed means and the univariate Minimum Volume Ellipsoid (MVE) location estimators. These estimators are intuitively appealing and easy to calculate.
