Abstract : Let X1,X2,...,Xn be i.i.d N(i,1) random variables, and set d = (Xn), the nearest integer to the sample mean. Under the squared error loss it is shown that d is minimax and admissible in the class of integervalued estimators. The problem of estimating in integervalued location parameter is also considered. Under mild conditions, the maximum likelihood estimator is minimax and admissible with respect to zeroone loss.
