Effective Rotation Patterns in Successive Sampling Over Two Occasions

  • G. N. SinghEmail author
  • F. Homa


The problem of estimation of finite population mean on the current occasion in two-occasion successive sampling has been considered. Utilizing all the readily available information from first and second occasions, an efficient estimation procedure has been suggested. Optimum replacement policy relevant to the proposed estimation procedure has been discussed. A proposed estimator is compared with natural estimators and suitable recommendations have been made.
