    In this paper, we consider the calibration procedure for Su et al.’s [Sociol. Methods Res. 44 (2014) DOI:10.1177/0049124114554459] adjusted Kuk randomized response (RR) technique by using auxiliary information such as gender or age group of respondents associated with the variable of interest. Our proposed calibration method can overcome the problems such as noncoverage and nonresponse. From the efficiency comparison study, we show that the calibrated adjusted Kuk’s RR estimators are more efficient than that of Su et al. [Sociol. Methods Res. 44 (2014) DOI:10.1177/0049124114554459], when the known population cell and marginal counts of auxiliary information are used for the calibration procedure.
