The problem of estimating the finite population mean of in simple random sampling in the presence of non-response and response error was considered. The estimators use auxiliary information to improve efficiency, assuming non–response and measurement error are present in both the study and auxiliary variables. A class of estimators was proposed and its properties studied in the simultaneous presence of non-response and response errors. It was shown that the proposed class of estimators is more efficient than the usual unbiased estimator, ratio and product estimators under non-response and response error together. A numerical study was carried out to compare its performance.
