We introduce a robust regression method for imprecise data, and apply it to social survey data. Our method combines nonparametric likelihood inference with imprecise probability, so that only very weak assumptions are needed and different kinds of uncertainty can be taken into account. The proposed regression method is based on interval dominance: interval estimates of quantiles of the error distribution are used to identify plausible descriptions of the relationship of interest. In the application to social survey data, the resulting set of plausible descriptions is relatively large, reflecting the amount of uncertainty inherent in the analyzed data set.
