has liberal attitudes, whereas high scores indicate conservatism.
The following hypothetical data are scores for married couples:
SSwife = 196, SShusband =
208, SP = -164.

Find the estimator of σ^2,
σ^2=ρS^2 (where ρ is a
constant multiplier) that minimizes the MSE. Useful facts:
E(S^2)=σ^2,
E(ρS^2) =
ρσ^2,
Var(ρS^2)=ρ^2Var(S^2)
and
Var(S^2)=(2σ^4)/n-1.
Express MSE as a function of ρ and and find the value of
ρ that minimizes this expression. (Hint: Take the
derivative with respect to , set equal to zero, solve for
ρ, etc.)
