Summary: In comparison to follow up a survey, the method of imputing nonresponses has been found to be much cheaper from the cost point of views. The problem of nonresponse in survey sampling has been widely discussed in direct question survey techniques. A very limited effort has been made if the responses are collected by using a randomized response device. In this paper, the problem of imputing scrambled responses will be considered by following S. Singh et al. [“Imputing and jackknifing scrambled responses”, Metron LXVI No. 2, 183–204 (2008), ftp://luna.sta.uniroma1.it/RePEc/articoli/2008-2-3.pdf] and Y. Zaizai et al. [Model Assist. Stat. Appl. 3, No. 2, 89–98 (2008; Zbl 1154.62015)].
