Abstract



This paper provides a useful application for comparison on the use of Adjusted Estimates (Weighting Adjustment) as against Unadjusted Estimates for estimate of Mean in survey Non-response .The use of response propensity and the predicted mean of the outcome variable for cell creation are stressed .The results from our empirical study emphasize the efficacy of Weighting Adjustment over the Unadjusted estimates .We adopt the following criteria: Variance, Bias and Mean Square Error in reaching our conclusion.
