Multi-Objective Compromise Allocation Stratified Sampling in the Presence of Non- Response Using Quadratic Cost Function
Sarhad Ullah Khan, Yousaf Shad Muhammad, Nouman Afgan

In this paper we propose a quadratic cost function for allocating sample size in multivariate stratified random sampling in the presence of the non-response. We use the separate linear regression estimator. In this multiobjective non-linear integer programming problem, we use extended lexicographic goal programming for solution purpose. To illustrate the application, we apply this formulation on a real data set.
