Alternative To Searls Ratio Type Estimator In Sample Surveys
A. A. Adewara
KEYWORDS: alternative, ratio· type, estimator, efficiency. condition
ABSTRACT:An alternative to Searls (1964) ratio-type estimator is proposed. Based on the mean square error of this proposed ratio-type estimator, it is observed to be more efficient than Searls (1964) ratio-type estimator provided the condition for its supremacy is met. Ten life and hypothetical data sets are used to testify to this claim.
