A new stochastic randomized response model is introduced that is useful for estimating the population mean of a sensitive quantitative variable. The proposed stochastic randomized response model is an extension of the stochastic randomized response model from a qualitative sensitive variable to a quantitative variable found in Singh (2002). The stochastic nature of a randomized response device helps increase a respondent’s cooperation while collecting information on sensitive variables in a society. The Bar-Lev, Bobovitch, and Boukai (2004) model is shown to be a special case of the proposed model.
