Replication Variance Estimation under Two-phase Sampling in the Presence of Non-response

Muqaddas Javed, Zahoor Ahmad, Muhammad Hanif


Kim and Yu (2011) discussed replication variance estimator for two-phase stratified sampling. In this paper estimators for mean have been proposed in two-phase stratified sampling for different situation of existence of non-response at first phase and second phase. The expressions of variances of these estimators have been derived. Furthermore, replication-based jackknife variance estimators of these variances have also been derived. Simulation study has been conducted to investigate the performance of the suggested estimators.
