In the present article, we consider a new calibration estimator of the population mean in the stratified double sampling. We get more efficient calibration estimator using new calibration weights compared to the straight estimator. In addition, the estimators derived are analyzed for different populations by a simulation study. The simulation study shows that new calibration estimator is highly efficient than the existing estimator.
