An Alternative Ratio-Cum-Product Estimator of Finite Population Mean Using Coefficient of Kurtosis of Two Auxiliary Variates in Two-Phase Sampling


Population mean, Coefficient of kurtosis, Two-phase sampling, Bias and Mean squared error


This paper deals with the problem of estimation of population mean in two-phase sampling. A ratio-product estimator of population mean using known coefficient of kurtosis of two auxiliary variates has been proposed. In fact, it is a two-phase sampling version of Tailor et al. (2010) estimator and its properties are studied. Proposed estimator has been compared with usual unbiased estimator, classical ratio and product estimator in two-phase sampling, and two-phase sampling versions of Singh (1967) and Singh et al. (2004) estimators respectively. To judge the merits of the proposed estimator over other estimators an empirical study is also carried out.
