The estimation of the population mean in mail surveys is investigated in the context of sampling on two occasions where the population mean of the auxiliary variable is available in the presence of non-response only for the current occasion in two occasion successive sampling. The behavior of the proposed estimator is compared with the estimator for the same situation but in the absence of non-response. An empirical illustration demonstrates the performance of the proposed estimator.
