Abstract
In this paper we have worked to weight and transform various estimators by Prasad (1986) and Lui (1991). We have introduced some ratio and ratio type estimators under weighting, transformation and model based approach, environment. We have introduced estimators efficient than estimators proposed by Chakrabarty (1979), Singh and Singh (1997), Singh (2002) and Singh et al. (2006).
