Under different sample sizes and different datasets, we notice from the data given in Tables 1, 2, 3, and 4 that the proposed estimator of a finite population mean using two auxiliary variables is always more efficient than the estimators [[bar.y].sub.AD], [[bar.y].sub.KC], [[bar.y].sub.MS], and [[bar.y].sub.RE].
Let a finite population U = (U1, U2, U3,...,Un) of dissimilar and exclusive elements.

Using auxiliary information Sisodia and Dwivedi [2] proposed ratio estimator using the known knowledge coefficient of variation of an auxiliary variable, Kadilar and Cingi [1] suggested a class of ratio estimators for the finite population mean, including Upadhyaya and Singh [3] , Singh [4], Singh and Tailor [5], Singh et al.

Chernick, a biostatician in medical research, and LaBudde, a mathematical software developer, explain that in statistics, bootstrapping is a technique of making inferences about a sampling distribution of a statistic by resampling the sample itself with replacement, as if it were a finite population. To the degree that the resampling distribution mimics the original sampling distribution, the inferences are accurate.
Furthermore, some auditors using the binomial distribution may use a "finite population correction factor," which reduces the binomial sample size in an attempt to compensate for a small population.
The finite population correction factor for primary sampling units was the total number of villages in the district.

Our objectives were to use current mark-recapture theory and methods to estimate population size, and to directly estimate finite population growth rate and its component demographic parameters of survival and recruitment (Nichols et al., 2000).
Let [U.sub.i]; i = 1,2........N, be a finite population of size N, and a sample of 'n' units is selected at random which further be divided into L non-overlapping homogenous strata of sizes [n.sub.1], [n.sub.2],.........
