A multiresponse multipredictor semiparametric regression (MMSR) model is a combi-nation of parametric and nonparametric regressions models with more than one predictor and response variables where there is correlation between responses. Due to this correlation we need to construct a symmetric weight matrix. This is one of the things that distinguishes it from the clas-sical method, which uses a parametric regression approach. In this study, we theoretically developed a method of determining a confidence interval for parameters in a MMSR model based on a truncated spline, and investigating asymptotic properties of estimator for parameters in a MMSR model, especially consistency and asymptotic normality. The weighted least squares method was used to estimate the MMSR model. Next, we applied a pivotal quantity method, a Cramer–Wold theorem, and a Slutsky theorem to determine the confidence interval, investigate consistency, and asymptotic normality properties of estimator for parameters in a MMSR model. The obtained results were that the estimated regression function is linear to observation. We also obtained a 100(1 − α)% confidence interval for parameters in the MMSR model, and the estimator for parameters in MMSR model was consistent and asymptotically normally distributed. In the future, these obtained results can be used as a theoretical basis in designing a standard toddlers growth chart to assess nutritional status.
