This Paper deals with a comparative analysis of some almost unbiased modified ratio estimators for population mean with known population parameters. Over the years a lot of modified estimators have been proposed using information from auxiliary variable that is highly related to the studied variable. We compared some of the estimators and studied their behaviors at varying sample sizes. It was observed that some of the estimators are distribution sensitive.
