The strong consistency of regression quantile statistics (Koenker and Bassett ) in linear models with iid errors is established. Mild regularity conditions on the regression design sequence and the error distribution are required. Strong consistency of the associated empirical quantile process (introduced in Bassett and Koenker ) is also established under analogous conditions. However, for the proposed estimate of the conditional distribution function of Y, no regularity conditions on the error distribution are required for uniform strong convergence, thus establishing a Glivenko-Cantelli-type theorem for this estimator.
