Small-Sample Estimator Properties Nature of Small-Sample Properties The small-sample, or finite-sample, distribution of the estimator βˆ j for any finite sample size N < ∞ has 1. a mean, or expectation, denoted as E(βˆ j), and 2. a variance denoted as Var(βˆ j). DESIRABLE PROPERTIES OF ESTIMATORS 6.1.1 Consider data x that comes from a data generation process (DGP) that has a density f( x). 0000003874 00000 n However, to evaluate the above quantity, we need (i) the pdf f ^ which depends on the pdf of X (which is typically unknown) and (ii) the true value (also typically unknown). An estimator ^ n is consistent if it converges to in a suitable sense as n!1. A desirable property of an estimator is that it is correct on average. The numerical value of the sample mean is said to be an estimate of the population mean figure. It uses sample data when calculating a single statistic that will be the best estimate of the unknown parameter of the population. Given a choice, we are interested in estimator precision and would prefer that b2 have the probability distribution f2(b2) rather than f1(b2). by Marco Taboga, PhD. ESTIMATION 6.1.
