ALMOST UNBIASED ESTIMATOR FOR ESTIMATING POPULATION MEAN USING KNOWN VALUE OF SOME POPULATION PARAMETER(S)

Rajesh Singh, Mukesh Kumar, Florentin Smarandache

Abstract


In this paper we have proposed an almost unbiased estimator using known value of some population parameter(s). Various existing estimators are shown particular members of the proposed estimator. Under simple random sampling without replacement (SRSWOR) scheme the expressions for bias and mean square error (MSE) are derived. The study is extended to the two phase sampling. Empirical study is carried out to demonstrate the superiority of the proposed estimator.
