An exponential-type estimator is developed for the population mean of the sensitive study variable based on various Randomized Response Techniques (RRT) using a non-sensitive auxiliary variable. The mean squared error (MSE) of the proposed estimator is derived for generalized RRT models. The proposed estimator is compared with competitors in a simulation study and an application. The proposed estimator is found to be more efficient using a non-sensitive auxiliary variable.
