Efficient Estimation of Population Mean Using Centered Modified Systematic Sampling and Interpolation Kim, Hyuk-Joo; Choi, Byoung-Chul;
A method is proposed for efficiently estimating the mean of a population which has a linear trend. The proposed estimator is based on the centered modified systematic sampling method and the concept of interpolation. Using the expected mean square error criterion, it is shown that the proposed method is more efficient than conventional methods in most real cases.
