In this paper, we propose regression methods based on the likelihood function. We assume Arnold-Beaver Skew Normal(ABSN) errors in a simple linear regression model. It was shown that the novel method performs better with an asymmetric data set compared to the usual regression model with the Gaussian errors. The utility of a novel method is demonstrated through simulation and real data sets.
