Abstract

This paper defines and discusses a generalized class of composite estimators for small domains, using auxiliary information, under systematic sampling scheme. The generalized class of composite estimators, among others, includes a number of direct, synthetic and composite estimators. Further, it demonstrates the use of the estimators belonging to the generalized class for estimating crop acreage for small domains and also compares their relative performance with the corresponding direct and synthetic estimators, through a simulation study.
