Families of Estimators for Estimating Mean Using Information of Auxiliary Variate Under Response and Non-Response
This research article is concerned with the efficiency improvement of estimators for finite population mean under complete and incomplete information rising as a result of non-response. Different families of estimators for estimating the mean of study variate via known population mean, proportion and rank of auxiliary variate under different situations are proposed along with their bias and mean square error (MSE). Optimum conditions are suggested to attain minimum mean square error of proposed families of estimators. Further the problem is extended for the situation of unknown parameters of auxiliary variate and two phase sampling families of estimators are suggested along with their properties under fixed cost and precision. Employing real data sets, theoretical and empirical comparisons are executed to explain the efficiency of the proposed families of estimators.
