Gupta and Shabbir (2008) have suggested an alternative form of ratio-type estimator for estimating the population mean. In this paper, we introduced new estimators by mixing two, stratified and cluster sampling method. Then we improved these estimators by using auxiliary variables and introducing new estimators. For sampling in infinite populations with a high geographic dispersion, the population will be divided into some smaller sub-population which leads to dispersion reduction to some extent. This will affect the variance of the estimator. Additionally dividing the population will result in saving cost, time and eases calculations.

Keywords: Auxiliary variables, cluster sampling, estimator, stratified sampling.
