An Alternative Exponential Estimator of Population Median

Ekaette I. Enang, Sylvanus I. Etuk, Emmanuel J. Ekpenyong, Victoria M. Akpan


In this study an exponential estimator of population median is proposed in two sampling schemes - simple and stratified random sampling schemes. Its properties were derived to the second degree of approximation. Theoretical comparisons and numerical illustrations with relevant existing estimators show the strength of the proposed estimators.


Supplementary variable, exponential median estimator, efficiency.
