dc.description.abstract <p>There is a little-known but very simple generalization of the standard result that for uncorrelated random variables with common mean µ and variance 2 σ , the expected value of the sample variance is 2 σ . The generalization justifies the use of the usual standard error of the sample mean in possibly heteroscedastic situations, and motivates elementary estimators in even unbalanced linear random effects models. The latter both provides nontrivial examples and exercises concerning method-of-moments estimation, and also helps "demystify" the whole matter of variance component estimation. This is illustrated in general for the simple one-way context and for a specific unbalanced two-factor hierarchical data structure.</p>
