Large Sample Theory: A Premise In addition to °nite sample properties it is important to know the asymptotic or large sample properties of estimators and test statistics. These properties are not de°ned for a particular sample size; rather, they are de°ned as the sample size grows without bound . Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 2 / 27

Even without normality (namely, LR.6), the t and F statistics have approximately t and F distributions in large sample. Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 2 / 27

EXAMPLE: Unbiasedness De°nition: An estimator W of θ is unbiased if, for all possible values of θ , E [ W ] = θ Meaning: if we could inde°nitely draw random (°nite) samples on Y from the population, compute an estimate each time, and then average them over all samples, we would obtain θ .

    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.
