Unbiasedness
An estimator  of some unknown
quantity  is said to be unbiased if the
procedure that yields  has the
property that, were it used repeatedly
the long-term average of these
estimates would be .
 That is to say, E() = .

Variance of a Point Estimator
MVUE – Smallest variance estimator
 Theorem

If X1,…Xn is a random sample of size n
form a normal distribution with mean 

and variance  , then the sample mean X
is the MVUE for 
