The present paper deals with the application of ratio type estimator to estimate population mean for small area on current occasion in repeated surveys. The estimation of population mean for small area on current occasion has been proposed using separate ratio-type estimator and combined ratio-type estimator. The mean square errors (MSE) of proposed estimators have also been derived and show that the estimate based on combined ratio-type estimator is more efficient than separate ratio-type estimator, under certain conditions. In addition, this theoretical result is supported by an empirical study.
