Just a note

For instance, if * were lognormally distributed, your estimates of the standard deviation of would be proportional to the mean * - and your estimated bias would be similarly affected.

Notice however, that whilst positively skewed distributions have a positive association between estimates of their location and dispersion, this does not imply a positive skew indicates there is a simple linear 1:1 relationship.
