The present paper deals with some ratio cum median based modified ratio estimators for estimating the finite population mean with the linear combinations of known parameters of the auxiliary variable such as kurtosis, and Coefficient of variation. The efficiencies of the proposed estimators are assessed with that of simple random sampling without replacement (SRSWOR) sample mean and ratio estimator both by algebraically and numerically. From the numerical comparison it is observed that the proposed estimators perform better than the SRSWOR sample mean as well as the Ratio estimator.
