This subject is interesting to me for a few reasons. One is the fact that this is a fairly new concept only being about 50 years old and with an estimation method only being about 30 years old. With these newer concepts I believe that there is a lot more to study. Another reason why this subject is appealing to me is that it is a way to gather usable data without invading a persons privacy. For example, if a survey was to go out with questions such as “Have you used illegal drugs?” it is a possibility that some may not answer honestly. This is where the randomized response can help. It can give a more accurate answers for sensitive questions such as those.
