By

S. MOHANTY and J. SAHOO, Orissa University of Agriculture & Technology

SUMMARY.  For estimating a finite population mean under ratio method of estimation, simple linear transformations using the known minimum and maximum values of auxiliary variable have been considered. The suggested transformations provide efficient ratio estimators even when the conventional ratio estimator is less efficient than the simple mean per unit estimator.
