# Higher order robust moments

Is it possible to calculate the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and higher-order central robust moments? Is there any other methodology and implementation?

How are these comparable to regular sample moments?

• You have to define them before we can comment. In general anything based on high powers is likely to be unstable. There are exceptions e.g. with values defined on $[0,1]$. Note that L-moments are named by analogy with conventional moments; they are not robust versions of the latter. (What did 7 do that it is out of favour?) Dec 8 '14 at 21:05
