Abstract:Two alternatives to the generalized ratio estimator, i.e., Grosenbaugh's 3PSEVENTH, are studied. Both make more complete use of auxiliary information which is available at the conclusion of 3P sampling. Both appear to be more biased but more accurate than 3PSEVENTH. For. Sci. 45(2):179-185.
