The Class of Estimators of Finite Population Mean Using Incomplete Multi-Auxiliary Information

Title variants
Languages of publication
In this paper, a class of estimators is considered for estimating the mean of the finite population utilizing available incomplete multi-auxiliary information. Some special cases of this class of estimators are considered. The approximate expressions for bias and mean square error of the suggested estimators have also been derived and theoretical results are numerically supported.
