    "Scrambled data are as good as scrambled eggs." In the present investigation, it has been shown that scrambled responses on sensitive variables such as income, drugs used, induced abortions etc. can also be imputed by following Singh, Joarder and King (1996) and can be Jackknifed to estimate the variance of the resultant ratio type estimator by following Rao and Sitter (1995). Results have been simulated under different levels of untruthful reporting by following Singh, Joarder and King (1996) and are compared with those from Rao and Sitter (1995) study.
