This article deals with the problem of estimation of current population mean when nonresponse occurs on the current (second) occasion in two-occasion successive sampling. Using the subsampling of nonrespondent technique, exponential-type estimators of current population mean have been proposed and their properties are examined. Optimum replacement strategies for the proposed estimators have been suggested and empirical studies are carried out to assess the performances of the proposed estimators. Results are interpreted and suitable recommendations are made.
