Studies have been carried out on domain mean estimation using non-linear cost function. However little has been done on domain stratum estimation using non-linear cost function using ratio estimation in the presence of non-response. This study develops a method of optimal stratum sample size allocation in domain mean estimation using double sampling with non-linear cost function in the presence of non- response. To obtain an optimum sample size, Lagrangian multiplier technique is employed by minimizing precision at a specified cost. In the estimation of the domain mean, auxiliary variable information in which the study and auxiliary variables both suffers from non-response in the second phase sampling is used. The expressions of the biases and mean square errors of proposed estimator has also been obtained.
