Abstract: The estimation of a finite population distribution function is considered when there are missing data. Calibration adjustment is used for dealing with nonresponse at the estimation stage. Several procedures are proposed and compared. A numerical study is carried out to evaluate the performances of estimators. Computational problems with the implementation of the proposed calibration estimators are also considered.
