In this paper we discuss jackknife estimators of the variance and their corrections precisely. Shao-Wu [10] have studied a jackknife variance estimator which is based on a delete-d-original estimator. And they have proved the consistency of the delete-d jackknife variance estimator even if the original estimator is not smooth. Their results are especially useful for the jackknife estimation of the variance of the sample quantile. Whereas in the case of smooth original estimators, which include U-statistics, the delete-d jackknife variance estimator is at least as large as the delete-1 estimator which is the traditional jackknife variance estimator. Then the delete-d jackknife variance estimator has larger bias than the delete-1.
