Generalized Quantitative Randomized Response Model

by Zawar Hussain*^ and Javid Shabbir .

Abstract: In this study we proposed a generalized extension of Ryu et al. (2005) randomized response model (RRM) to estimate the mean of a sensitive quantitative variable. It has been shown that the proposed estimator has advantages over the estimators of Ryu et al. (2005) in terms of efficiency as well as the privacy protection. We also studied the performance of proposed structure in stratified random sampling protocol and it has been observed that results are better than in the case of the Ryu et al. (2005) stratified mean estimator. Completely truthful responses are assumed.

Key Words: Randomized response technique; Estimation of mean of sensitive character; Stratified random sampling
