Chapter 8: Confidence Intervals Based Single Sample Section 8.1-Point Estimation ~Properties of Good Estimator~ Unbiased -Value of structure varies from one sample to another -Want the average value of the statistics to equal the parameter to try to estimate Small Variance -If two different statistics are each unbiased for estimating the same parameter, want statistic with the smaller variance -Statistic will, on average, yield estimates that are closer to the true value of parameter An example is provided at the bottom Section 8.2- Confidence Interval for Pop’n Mean when Theta Known Statistical Infernce- Using sample statistic (sample mean) to conclusion about population parameter (population mean) ~Two
