In this article, we have suggested an efficient factor chain-type class of estimators in the presence of measurement error and nonresponse simultaneously. It is shown that several estimators can be generated from our proposed class of estimators. Mean Square Error of the proposed class of estimator are derived and compared with other existing estimators. The conditions under which proposed estimator is more efficient are obtained. A theoretical and empirical study has done to demonstrate the efficiency of this estimator over other existing estimators.

Keywords: Auxiliary variable, bias, mean square error, measurement errors, nonresponse, study variable
