In this paper we estimate quantile sensitivities for dependent sequences via infinitesimal perturbation analysis, and prove asymptotic unbiasedness, weak consistency, and a central limit theorem for the estimators under some mild conditions. Two common cases, the regenerative setting and ϕ-mixing, are analyzed further, and a new batched estimator is constructed based on regenerative cycles for regenerative processes. Two numerical examples, the G/G/1 queue and the Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process, are given to show the effectiveness of the estimator.
