The problem of estimating a population mean in the presence of an auxiliary variable has been widely discussed in the finite population sampling literature. For the problem of estimating a population median, however, the situation is quite different and only recently has this problem been discussed. Chambers and Dunstan (1986) proposed a method for estimating the population distribution function and the associated quantiles. Rao et al. (1990) proposed ratio and difference estimators for the… CONTINUE READING
