Elementary Statistics Chapter 7 Definitions Definitions:  Point Estimate- is a specific numerical value estimate of a parameter.  Interval Estimate- Is an interval or a range of values used to estimate the parameter. This estimate may or may not contain the value of the parameter being estimated.  Confidence level- is the probability that the interval estimate will contain the parameter, assuming that a large number of samples are selected and that the estimation process on the same parameter is repeated.  Confidence Interval- Is a specific interval estimate of a parameter determined by using data obtained from a sample and by using the specific confidence level of the estimate.  Margin of Error- also called the maximum error of the estimate, is the maximum likely difference between the point estimate of parameter and the actual value of the parameter. Three Properties of a Good Estimator: 1. The estimator should be an unbiased estimator. That is, the expected value or the mean of the estimates obtained from samples of a given size is equal to the parameter being estimated. 2. The estimator should be consistent. For a consistent estimator, as sample size increases, the value of the estimator approaches the value of the parameter estimated. 3. The estimator should be a relatively efficient estimator. That is, of all the statistics that can be used to estimate a parameter, the relatively efficient estimator has the smallest variance.
