The Rationale of Forward Unbiasedness Hypothesis (FUH)
0 algorithm has been widely applied to the multivariate classification, for its unbiasedness and precision towards the continuous and categorical variables compared to other decision tree algorithms [17, 31-37].

While the Johansen cointegration procedure was used to test for long-run market unbiasedness, the short-run price dynamics had to be analysed by an error-correction model (ECM).
While comparing among SECR models, although classical maximum-likelihood based inference procedures are asymptotic and establish unbiasedness for large sample sizes (Efford 2011), their relevance to small sample situations has been inferred questionable (Royle & Young 2008).
2-2-2-1-2 real judicial reflection; according to unbiasedness principle in public affairs, all reflection must be unbiased and favoritism must be avoided.

Consequently, forecasts should also meet two other classic properties of rationality: unbiasedness and efficiency.
Researchers who test for unbiasedness or accuracy argue that one should avoid the median, for it does not reflect any specific information set to which unbiasedness should apply.
Questions remain about other properties of the estimates, notably unbiasedness, and in the sense discussed in Diebold and Lopez [1994 "The key property of optimal forecast errors from which all others follow .
It is noteworthy that the two principles of assurance probability and expected width are closely related to the two standard criteria of consistency and unbiasedness in statistical point estimation, respectively.
