So ZXi is a complete, sufﬁcient suﬁicient statistic by Theorem 6.1.3 and Thu-rem 6.1.6. 2 xi — 11 '~ negative binomial(n,€). 6.7.2.- w a) The sample density 18 Hf(:s|0)= [1025’] = Gnu-I 1199-1 , so HXiissuﬁicient for9, not 2%. 0—1 to . . .- b) Since f(xi | 9) = 9e( ) gx)’ an exponential family with t(x) = log}, 2 (03% = logﬂig is ‘ complete and'sumcient by Theorem 6.1.6. Since HXi is a one-to-one function of logniﬁ, HE is also a complete, suﬁicient statistic. ' a I To ﬁnd a best unbiased mtimator of 9, ﬁrst ﬁnd a complete suﬁcient statistic. The joint pdf is I f(xl0)= (71,; —")1IIIH.)(x,)= —(-217 )nl 1[09)(mu|ﬁl) By the Factorization Theorem, max I Xi' is a sufﬁcient statistic. To check that it is a complete sufﬁcient statistic, let Y = max [Xi I. Note that the pdf of Y is fY(y) = nyn—l/On, 0 < y < 0. Suppose g(y) is a function such' that mm =/: “n —n—z(y)dy— — o for an 0 Taking derivatives shows that all—15(3) = o, for all 9. So 3(a) = o, for all a, and Y = max |Xi | is a complete sufﬁcient statistic. Now 1 BY: 12ij Tifdy=m9=>E(E—:1Y)=9. Thereforen —n—max |Xi | is a best unbiased estimator for 0 since it is a function of a complete sufﬁcient statistic. (Note that (X (1), X00) 18 not a minimal suﬁicient statistic (recall Exercise 5.22). It is for 9 < Xi < 20, —20 < Xi < 9, 40 < Xi < 60, etc., but not when the range-is symmetric about zero. Then max | Xil is minimal suﬁicient. =7~ s8 #13) The Cramér-Rao Lower Bound for unbiased estimates of p is , 2 [3%.] - _ 1 _ __T— “ll-Biff log L(pIX) -nE { it; log [px(1—p)1-X]} ___p(1-p) _ x1(l—Xi ‘1 ’ -=nE{ 3 (1-1)) _7—} since EX: p. The MLE ofp is 3 = 1132311, with EB: p and Varfi = p(l—p)/n. Thus 6 attains the CRLB and is the best unbiased estimator of p. 'Q-us b) By independence, E(X1X2X3X4) = 11;; Exi = p4, so the estimator is unbiased. Since ZXi is a complete sufﬁcient statistic, Theorems 7.3.2 and 7.3.5 imply that E(X1X2X3X4 | in) is the best unbiased estimator of p4. Evaluating this yields E(x x x ix“ x n)- < 2mm) 12X34 i=1 1,— — HEP: Xi=t) if 4 11.4 t—4 n—t‘ =” (H) “ ‘” =<H>/< > . (I: PlU-p)1H "4 for t Z 4. For t < 4 one of the Xia must be zero, so the estimator is E(X1X2X3X4 l -+ tn - m a. From Theorem 5.3.2, Y : X0) has pdf n—1 fY(Y)— (n lIAWY/A[1_(1_eY/A)] =XC’“Y/"_ Thus Y ~ exponential (A/n) so EY = A/n and nY is an unbiased estimator of A. - b. Since fx(x) is in the exponential family, 2% is a complete sufﬁcient statistic and E(nX(1) I EXi) 18 the best unbiased estimator of A. Since E(): X): nA, We must have E(nX(1)I 2K)=n1i}:X by completeness. Of course, any function of EXi that 13 an imbiased estimator of A' is the best unbiased estimator of A. Thus, we know directly that since EEK) = nA, XXI/n' 1s the best unbiased estimator of A. c. From part a); A = 601.2 and from part b) A = 128.8. Maybe the exponential model is not a good assumption. ﬁt) Since the Poisson family is an exponential family with t(x) = x, 2X1 is a complete suﬁcient statistic. Any function of 2% that is an unbiased estimator of A is the unique but unbiased estimator of A. Since i is a function of 21g and EX = A, X is the but unbiased estimator of A. b) 52 is an unbiased estimator of the population variance, that 18, E82: A. X 1s a one-to—one function of EXi. So X 18 also a complete suﬁicient statistic. Thus, E(S2|X)' 1s an unbiased estimator of A and, by Theorem 7.3.5, it is also the unique best unbiased estimator of A. Therefore 15(82 |X) = X. Then we have VarS2 = Var(E(S2IX)) + Evm(52|1'() = VarX + EVar(S2|X), so Var S2 > VarX. c) We formulate a general theorem. Let T(X) be a complete sufﬁcient statistic, and let T(X) be any statistic other than T(X) such that ET(X) = ET’(X). Then E[T’(X) [T(X)] = T(X) and Var T'(X) > Var T(X). ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
