One of the most useful indicators of relative dispersion is the coefficient of variation. The characteristics of the coefficient of variation have contributed to its widespread use in most scientific and academic disciplines, with real life applications. The traditional estimators of the coefficient of variation are based on conventional moments; therefore, these are highly affected by the presence of extreme values. In this article, we develop some novel calibration-based coefficient of variation estimators for the study variable under double stratified random sampling (DSRS) using the robust features of linear (L and TL) moments, which offer appropriate coefficient of variation estimates. To evaluate the usefulness of the proposed estimators, a simulation study is performed by using three populations out of which one is based on the COVID-19 pandemic data set and the other two are based on apple fruit data sets. The relative efficiency of the proposed estimators with respect to the e...
