Large sample efficiency of least squares estimation of parameters in a regression set up-linear or nonlinear is explored theoretically. Several cases of heavy, medium, and lean tailed distributions of the regression residuals are investigated numerically. The conclusion is consistent with the classical knowledge that the more heavy tailed or skewed the distribution of the residuals is, the less efficient are the least squares estimators.
