    \subsection{intro}

    I get:
    1. Chapter 1: Unbiased estimators
    1.1 intro

    If I do:

    Try
    Code (Text):
    \documentclass{report}

    ...

        \chapter{Unbiased Estimators}
        \section{intro}
    Make sure to use the "report" class (not "article") when you're using chapters.
