Abstract

Singh et al. (2016) presented a ratio and regression estimators of population variance of a sensitive variable using auxiliary information based on randomized response technique (RRT). In this article, the RRT is considered in stratified random sampling for the estimation of variance. A generalized class of estimators of variance in stratified RRT is proposed and derive the procedure of variance estimation in stratified RRT. The expression of the bias and mean square error are expressed. The empirical findings support the soundness of proposed scheme of variance estimation.

Keywords:
Stratified random sampling, sensitive variable, randomized response technique, variance estimation.
