This article proposes some estimators based on an adaptation of the estimators developed by Bahl and Tuteja [1], Diana [2], Koyuncu and Kadilar [3], Koyuncu and Kadilar [4], Shabbir and Gupta [5], and Koyuncu [6] utilizing available supplementry attributes. Further, a new family of estimators is also developed by adapting Koyuncu [7] and Koyuncu [6]. Under stratified sampling scheme along side the nonresponse issue, the expressions for the the mean square errors (MSEs) of the adapted and proposed estimators have been determined. These theoretical findings are demonstrated by a numerical illustration with original data set. (c) 2019 The Authors. Published by Atlantis Press SARL.
