A General Class Of Estimators For Finite Population Mean In The Presence Of Non-Response When Using The Second Raw Moments



In this paper, a general class of family of estimators for estimation of finite population mean is proposed under non-response, by using information on second raw moments. Properties of some ratio, product, modified ratio and modified product type estimators, which are members of a suggested class of estimators, are studied.  It is shown that a suggested class of estimators performs better than the usual ratio and product type estimators as well as regression and other considered estimators. A numerical study is carried out to support a suggested class of estimators.
