Estimation, Advanced Statistics

The process of providing the numerical value for the population parameter on the basis of information gathered from a sample. If a single ?gure is computed for the unknown parameter the process is known as point estimation. If an interval is computed which is likely to include the parameter, then the procedure is known as interval estimation.
