Estimation of Average Paddy Production of Pira Nagar Village at Barabanki District in India
The idea of the present paper is the use of the known information on study variable for enhanced estimation of average paddy production of Pira Nagar village at Barabanki District in India under the Simple Random Sampling Scheme. This known information is utilzed in the form of median of primary variable as it is readily available and does not require every unit of the population to be inquired. The Bias and MSE of the suggested estimator are derived up to approximation of degree one.The minimum value of the MSE of suggested estimator is also obtained by optimizing the characterizing scalar. The MSE has also been compared with the considered competing estimators both theoretically and empirically. The theoretical efficiency conditions of the suggested estimator to be better than the considered estimators are verified using natural population on primary data collected from Pira Nagar Village at Barabanki District of Uttar Pradesh state in India.
