# Showing that statistic is unbiased

Let $X$ be observed data. Let $\hat{\theta}(X)$ be an unbiased estimate of $\theta$ and let T be a sucient statistic for $\theta$. Define the new estimator $\hat\theta^{*}$ of $\theta$,

$$\hat\theta^{*}(X) =E(\hat\theta(X)| T)$$

Then, show that:

$\hat\theta^{*}(X)$ is unbiased

Use that in general: $E[E[X\mid Y]]=E[X]$ whatever $X$ and $Y$ may be (such that the conditional expectation exists). –  Stefan Hansen Sep 30 '12 at 14:59
