Properties of Good Estimator

Small Sample properties Unbiased Estimator : Biased means the difference of true value of parameter and value of estimator. When the difference becomes zero then it is called unbiased estimator. i.e., Best Estimator : An estimator is called best when value of its variance is smaller than variance is best. i.e . Where   is another estimator. Efficient Estimator : …

Gauss-Markov Theorem

Given the assumptions of the classical linear regression model, the least-squares estimators, in the class of unbiased linear estimators, have minimum variance, that is, they are BLUE. In other words Gauss-Markov theorem holds the properties of Best Linear Unbiased Estimators.
