‎In this paper‎, ‎estimating the mean problem of the population when the sampling data have measurement errors has been studied via a new efficient estimator‎. ‎We also investigate the efficiency of this estimator compared to other available estimators‎. ‎And finally‎, ‎we use these results for real data‎. ‎We show that the proposed estimator is more efficient than other existing estimators‎.
