Description
CHAPTER 10 – ESTIMATION Statistical inference is the process by which we acquire information and draw conclusions about Qualities desirable in estimators are unbiasedness, consistency and relative efficiency. populations from samples. Unbiasedness an unbiased estimator of a population parameter is an estimator whose Objective of estimation is to determine the expected value is equal to that parameter. E(X) = µ approximate value of a population parameter on Consistency – If the difference between the estimator and the parameter grows smaller 2 the basis of a sample statistic. as the sample size grows larger. V(X) is σ /n Point estimators don’t get closer to the Relative efficiency - If there are two unbiased estimators of a parameter, the one whose Width of the interval variance is smaller is said to be relatively efficient. The width of the confidence interval estimate is a function of the population SD, confidence level and Estimating µ when σ is known 1-a a a/2 Za/2 sample size. 0.90 0.10 0.05 1.645 Use confidence interval estimator Population SD The probability 1 – α is the confidence level 0.95 0.05 0.025 1.96 Consider σ=75, interval estimate 370.16 ± 29.40 If confidence level is 1 – α=0.95, 0.98 0.02 0.01 2.33 Consider σ=150, interval estimate 370.16 ± 58.80 α=0.05, α/2=0.025, Z = Z = 1.96 0.99 0.01 0.005 2.575 Confidence level a/2 0.025 Consider 95%, interval estimate 370.16 ± 29.40 Error of estimation Consider 90%, interval estimate 370.16 ± 24.68 Sampling error as the difference between an estimator and parameter.
