Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of estimating ratio of two population means by using quantitative auxiliary knowledge in the form of first and second moments. Through this paper, an improved generalized two phase sampling estimator has been proposed. The relative bias and mean squared error of the suggested estimator has been derived and studied. Also, a comparative study with the conventional estimators has been included to establish its superiority. Besides theoretical comparisons, a subset of optimum estimators having the same minimum mean squared error (MSE) is also explored. An empirical study is also carried out to support theoretical results.
