Abstract

This article deals with estimation of population mean for missing data in simple random sampling. The properties of the proposed procedure are studied up-to first order of approximation and under the optimality conditions proposed estimator outperforms other existing estimators. A numerical illustration, based on the two real data sets, highlights the efficiency gain using our proposed estimator.
