Question: suppose that x1 x2xn is an iid sample of size...

Question details

Suppose that X1, X2,....Xn is an iid sample of size n from a Pareto pdf of the form 0-1) otherwise, where θ > 0. (a) Find θ the method of moments (MOM) estimator for θ For what values of θ does θ exist? Why? (b) Find θ, the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) for θ. (c) Show explicitly that the MLE depends on the sufficient statistic for this Pareto family but that the MOM estimator does not
