This paper considers use of the scrambled response model in Ranked Set Sampling (RSS) for collecting information on second call to estimate population mean when non-response is due to sensitivity of the study variable. It also uses Extreme Ranked Set Sampling (ERSS) and Median Ranked Set Sampling (MRSS) to sub-sample the non-respondents. Expressions for variances of different estimators are derived. A Monte Carlo experiment is carried out to observe the efficiency of proposed estimators.
