Problem on sufficient statistics

Let the distribution of $X_1,X_2,...X_n$ depend on two parameters $a, b$ such that there exists a single sufficient statistic, for either parameter when the other is fixed/known. Show that there is ...

Showing the sample mean is a sufficient statistics from an exponential distribution

Suppose that the lifelengths ( in thousands of hours) of light bulbs are distributed Exponential($\theta$), where $\theta>0$ is unknown. If we observe $\overline x = 5.2$ for a sample of $20$ light ...

Sufficiency of $|X|$ when $X\sim N(0,\sigma^2)$ without using Factorization theorem

Question: Given, $X\sim N(0,\sigma^2)$. By means of conditional approach show that $|X|$ is a sufficient estimator for $\sigma^2$. My Attempt: This problem is very easy if we use Fisher–Neyman ...

Proving sufficiency by showing ratio of statistic pdf to sample pdf is independent of unknown parameter

Let $X_1,...,X_n$ be iid random variables with densities given by $$ f_{x_i}(x|\theta)=e^{i\theta - x}\mathbb{I}_{(i\theta,\infty)}(x), $$ when $x>i\theta $ and $x=0$ otherwise. Let $T$ be the ...

Minimal Sufficient Statistic for Gaussians with different means

I have the following problems on my Statistics course (using Casella and Berger's book) problem set: 1) Let $Y_{i} = X_{i}'\theta + U_{i}$ where $\theta \in \mathbb{R}^k$ and $U_{i}$ are iid $N(0,...

Showing sufficiency using the Fisher-Neyman factorization theorem

I have derived a likelihood function for $\theta$ as follows: $$L(\theta)=(2\pi\theta)^{-n/2} \exp\left(\frac{ns}{2\theta}\right)$$ Where $\theta$ is an unknown parameter, $n$ is the sample size, ...

Is an injective statistic always sufficient?

New to the concept of sufficient statistics. Does it follow, in general, from the factorization theorem that any injective statistic is necessarily a sufficient statistic? I cannot find anything ...

Can the Fisher factorization theorem be understood as a product of densities?

Let $T$ be some random variable on a probability space $\Omega$. Then we have, for $x\in\Omega$: $$P(x) = P(x|T=T(x))P(T = T(x))$$ This equation is nonsense in an arbitrary probability space but ...

Does Fisher's factorization theorem provide the pdf of the sufficient statistic?

From Wikipedia Fisher's factorization theorem or factorization criterion provides a convenient characterization of a sufficient statistic. If the probability density function is $ƒ_θ(x)$, then $T$ ...
