Hi! I was wondering

In my note we've a Corollary saying:

If T is sufficient for \(\displaystyle \Theta\), the maximum likelihood estimate is a function of T.

where T is \(\displaystyle T(X_1,X_2,...X_n) \)and X is given by\(\displaystyle f(x|\Theta)\)

I was wondering, isn't every Maximum likelihood estimator a sufficient statistic?


Thanks for passing by!
