This paper proposes duals to Mohanty and Sahoo’s (1995) estimators and analyzes their properties. Unbiased estimators have also been obtained for interpenetrating subsample design and by using Jackknife technique given by Quenouille (1956). An empirical study is carried out to demonstrate the performances of the suggested estimators over other estimators.
