Empirical distribution functions (EDFs) based on ranked set sampling (RSS) and its modifications have been examined by many authors. In these studies, the proposed estimators have been investigated for infinite population settings. However, developing EDF estimators in finite population settings would be more valuable for areas such as environmental, ecological, agricultural, biological, medical, etc. This paper introduces new EDF estimators based on level-0, level-1 and level-2 sampling… 



Empirical distribution function estimators based on sampling designs in a finite population using single auxiliary variable

ABSTRACT In this paper, we study empirical distribution function (EDF) estimators based on ranked set sampling (RSS). Ranked set samples are constructed by using three different sampling designs

Performances of the Distribution Function Estimators Based on Ranked Set Sampling Using Body Fat Data

In this study, an application of empirical distribution function (EDF) estimators based on ranked set sampling (RSS) using real-life data set (body fat data) is illustrated. In this application,

Design based estimation for ranked set sampling in finite populations

In this paper, we consider design-based estimation using ranked set sampling (RSS) in finite populations. We first derive the first and second-order inclusion probabilities for an RSS design and

Characterization of a Ranked-Set Sample with Application to Estimating Distribution Functions

Abstract Ranked-set sampling has been shown to provide improved estimators of the mean and variance when actual measurement of the observations is difficult but ranking of the elements in a sample is

On the Estimation of the Distribution Function Using Extreme and Median Ranked Set Sampling

We study relationships between extreme ranked set samples (ERSSs) and median ranked set sample (MRSS) with simple random sample (SRS). For a random variable X, we show that the distribution function

On Distribution Function Estimation Using Double Ranked Set Samples With Application

As a variation of ranked set sampling (RSS); double ranked set sampling (DRSS) was introduced by Al-Saleh and Al-Kadiri (2000), and it has been used only for estimating the mean of the population. In

On distribution function estimation with partially rank-ordered set samples: estimating mercury level in fish using length frequency data

ABSTRACT We study the non-parametric estimation of a continuous distribution function F based on the partially rank-ordered set (PROS) sampling design. A PROS sampling design first selects a random

Estimation of Population Mean and Total in a Finite Population Setting Using Multiple Auxiliary Variables

This paper introduces a new sampling design in a finite population setting, where potential sampling units have a wealth of auxiliary information that can be used to rank them into partially ordered

Estimation of population mean and variance in flock management: a ranked set sampling approach in a finite population setting

Ranked set sampling is a sampling technique that provides substantial cost efficiency in experiments where a quick, inexpensive ranking procedure is available to rank the units prior to formal,

Performances of some goodness-of-fit tests for sampling designs in ranked set sampling

ABSTRACT In this study, we consider different sampling designs of ranked set sampling (RSS) and give empirical distribution function (EDF) estimators for each sampling designs. We provide comparative
