The paper proposes two mixed randomized response techniques as an alternative to the Kim and Warde’s (2005) randomized response technique. The properties of the models have been studied and found that the proposed mixed randomized response models are better than the Kim and Warde’s (2005) mixed randomized response models in some realistic situations. We extend the proposed model to stratified sampling. Numerical illustration is given in support of the present study.
