The methods of ratio and regression estimators discussed by Cochran(l977) are given as background materials and extended to the estimation of µy, the population mean of the Y's, using a general regression model.
The propagation of error technique given by Deming(l948) is used as an approximation to find the variance of the estimator µy.
Examples are given for each of the various models. Variances of μy are calculated and compared
