Properties of Successive Sample Moment Estimators
Moment type estimation of characteristics of a successively sampled finite population requires finding a solution to a pair of transcendental equations. Some global properties of two structurally distinct pairs—a symmetric and an asymmetric pair—of such equations are presented. Results of a Monte Carlo experiment designed to compare the performance of estimators computed by solving these transcendental equation pairs are reported.
