The missing data often create nuisance to the survey practitioners in producing the reliable estimates of the desired parameters. Keeping this point in view, the present work suggests some alternative imputation techniques to deal with the missing data problem at the beginning of the analysis and proposes some estimation procedures of current population mean in two-occasion successive sampling. The properties of the suggested estimation procedures have been analyzed, and their empirical performances are compared with similar type of estimators designated for whole response situation and another estimator defined for the situation when missing observations observed in the sample data. Based on the fascinating results, suitable recommendations are put forward to the survey practitioners/researchers for their real-life practical applications.
