Languages of publication
Following Khoshnevisan (2007) and Koyuncu and Kadilar (2009), this paper develops a general family of combined estimators of the population mean in post-stratified sampling (PSS) scheme, using known values of some population parameters of an auxiliary variable. Properties of the proposed family of estimators, including conditions for optimal efficiency, are obtained up to first order approximations. The results are illustrated empirically.
