Abstract

In this paper, we propose modified ratio estimators using some known values of coefficient of variation, coefficient of skewness and coefficient of kurtosis of auxiliary variable under ranked set sampling (RSS).  The mean square error (MSE) of the proposed ratio estimators under ranked set sampling is derived and compared with some existing ratio estimators under RSS. Through this comparison, we prove theoretically that MSC of proposed estimators is less than some existing ratio estimators in RSS under some conditions. The MSE of proposed estimators along with some existing estimator are also calculated numerically. We observe from numerical results that the suggested ratio estimators are more efficient than some existing ratio estimators under RSS.
