    Abstract: In survey sampling, the main objective is to make inference about the entire population parameters using the sample statistics. In this study, a nonparametric estimator of finite population total is proposed and the coverage probabilities using the Edgeworth expansion explored. Three properties; unbiasedness, efficiency and the confidence interval ... Show More
