Randomized response models for quantitative characters: Greenberg model

Olga Lidia Solano DÁVILA[1]

 

§       ABSTRACT: In this study we described some randomized response models (RRM) for quantitative characters. RRM for quantitative characters – Greenberg Model – were applied in a survey conducted at the Faculty of Mathematical Science of Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos in Peru in order to estimate the average monthly expenditure on alcoholic drinks (sensitive question) and the average monthly expenditure on textbooks (unrelated question). The population under study consisted of students registered in the 96-II school term.

§       KEYWORDS: Randomized response models; no response; randomization device; Greenberg model; sensitive question.
