Chain Ratio Type Estimators Using Known Parameters of Auxiliary Variates in Double Sampling
This paper discusses chain ratio type estimator for estimation of population mean in double sampling. The developed estimator uses two auxiliary variates associated with study variate in order to increases its efficiency. The developed estimator has been compared with usual unbiased estimator and other existing estimators. The expression for the bias and mean squared error of the developed estimator is obtained under large sample approximation. We have considered the natural population data set to examine the merits of the developed estimator and carried out the empirical study in support of theoretical findings. Numerical illustration shows that the proposed estimator is more efficient.
