On a Numerical Comparison of the Proposed Randomized Response Technique with Hussain and Shabbir

FB Adebola, AO Adepetun


In this paper, we compared our newly developed Randomized Response Technique (RRT) with that of Hussain-Shabbir’s dichotomous Randomized Response Technique (RRT) when data are obtained through the randomized response technique (RRT) proposed by Hussain and Shabbir (2007). It was established that the variance of the proposed technique is less than that of the conventional technique for various orders of probabilities of each answer option. Hence, the proposed technique is more efficient than the conventional technique.
