Summary: In this chapter, the problem of estimating the means of two rare sensitive characteristics has been considered by following the pioneer work of M. Land et al. [Statistics 46, No. 3, 351–360 (2012; Zbl 1241.62008)]. The proposed estimators will be investigated analytically as well as empirically.
