Estimating at least seven measures of qualitative variables from a single sample using randomized response technique


  • Lee, Cheon-Sig
  • Sedory, Stephen A.
  • Singh, Sarjinder


In this paper, like a magician can show several birds flying out of an empty basket, we show that at least seven parameters of interest to a social scientist can be estimated from a single sample and one response from each respondent. A real survey data application is given.
