Estimation of Population Mean using Imputation Techniques in Sample Survey

B.K. Singh, Upasana Gogoi


In the present paper, we have proposed three generalized classes of exponential dual to ratio type compromised imputation techniques in single phase sampling scheme and its properties have been studied. Their mean square error expressions are compared with the sample mean, ratio, and compromised method of imputation in the case of missing data and necessary conditions are derived. Further, theoretical results have been verified through empirical studies with the help of some natural population data sets to compare their efficiencies for different non-response rate.

We have provided the online access of all issues and papers to the indexing agencies (as given on journal web site). It’s depend on indexing agencies when, how and what manner they can index or not. Hence, we like to inform that on the basis of earlier indexing, we can’t predict the today or future indexing policy of third party (i.e. indexing agencies) as they have right to discontinue any journal at any time without prior information to the journal. So, please neither sends any question nor expects any answer from us on the behalf of third party i.e. indexing agencies.Hence, we will not issue any certificate or letter for indexing issue. Our role is just to provide the online access to them. So we do properly this and one can visit indexing agencies website to get the authentic information. Also: DOI is paid service which provided by a third party. We never mentioned that we go for this for our any journal. However, journal have no objection if author go directly for this paid DOI service.
