Abstract

In the present paper, a model based calibration estimator of population total has been developed when study variable y and auxiliary variable x are inversely related. The relative performance of the proposed model based calibration estimator in comparison to model based estimator, the usual regression estimator and calibration based regression estimator have been examined by conducting a limited simulation study. In view of the results of the simulation study, it has been found that model based calibration estimator has outperformed the other estimators. However, calibration based regression estimator was found to be close to the model based calibration estimator.
