  author={Yusuf Can Sevil and Tugba Ozkal Yildiz},
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 setting. However, developing EDF estimators in finite population setting would be more valuable for areas such as environmental, ecological, agricultural, biological, etc. This paper introduces new EDF estimators based on level-0, level-1 and level-2 sampling designs in RSS…

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
Dependence Between Order Statistics in Samples from Finite Population and its Application to Ranked Set Sampling
Let X1, X2,..., Xm, Y1, Y2,..., Yn be a simple random sample without replacement from a finite population and let X(1) ≤ X(2) ≤...≤ X(m) and Y(1) ≤ Y(2) ≤...≤ Y(n) be the order statistics of X1,
The efficiency of L ranked set sampling in estimating the distribution function
In this paper, L ranked set sampling (LRSS) technique (Al-Nasser in Simul Comput, 6:33–43, 2007) is considered for estimating the distribution function of a random variable. The suggested estimator
Estimation of a Finite Population Mean and Total Using Population Ranks of Sample Units
This paper introduces new estimators for population total and mean in a finite population setting, where ranks (or approximate ranks) of population units are available before selecting sample units.
Nonparametric Ranked-set Sampling Confidence Intervals for Quantiles of a Finite Population
Ranked-set sampling from a finite population is considered in this paper. Three sampling protocols are described, and procedures for constructing nonparametric confidence intervals for a population
