Sat Gupta: Mean Estimation of Sensitive Variables Under Measurement Errors and Non-Response Using Optional RRT Models
A mean estimator for sensitive variables is proposed under simple random sampling when measurement errors and non-response are present. We use the optional randomized response methodology which produces a more efficient estimator. We discuss two scrambling options and compare the proposed estimator with some of the commonly used estimators using both theoretical and empirical methods. We find that the proposed estimator performs better.

High Energy Jets (HEJ) provides all-order summation of the perturbative
terms dominating the production of well-separated multiple jets at
hadron colliders to leading log accuracy. We will present the first
calculation of all the real next-to-leading high energy logarithms to
the processes of pure jet and W-boson production in association with at
least two jets.
