Main Article Content


This article concerns entropy estimation using judgment post stratification sampling. Some nonparametric estimators are developed and shown to be consistent. Monte Carlo simulations are used to compare these estimators with their competitors in simple random sampling. The results indicate the preference of the new estimators.
