There are two types of estimation techniques : 1.Point Estimation 2. Interval Estimation 1. Point Estimation: When a single value is proposed to estimate, it is called as Point estimation.

Suppose the unknown parameter is ?. (e.g. ? = Population Mean) 2. We take a sample of size â€˜nâ€™ from the population of size â€˜Nâ€™ at random. So we get sample observations ( x 1 , x 2 , x 3 , â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦ x n ) 3. Now based on these sample observations we construct statistic T (e.g. Sample Mean) which will estimate ?

T is a single value obtained from the sample & is known as point estimator. The point estimator of Population Mean(µ), Population Standard Deviation(s) & Population Proportion(P) are the corresponding sample Mean(x¯),Sample Standard Deviation(s) & Sample Proportion(p).

Consider sample observations 14,15,6,17,28 from population of 100 units. Find an estimate of population mean. Estimate of µ is given by X¯ X¯ = (14+15+6+17+28)/5 X¯ = 16 Hence, estimate of µ is 16.Read More
