In this paper, the derivation of the likelihood function for parameter estimation based on double ranked set sampling (DRSS) designs used by Sabry; (2019) for the estimation of the parameters of the power generalized Weibull distribution is considered. The developed likelihood function is then used for the estimation of the exponential Pareto distribution parameters. The maximum likelihood estimators (MLEs) are then investigated and compared to the corresponding ones based on simple

A Monte Carlo simulation is conducted and the absolute relative biases, mean square errors, and efficiencies are compared for the different designs. The relative efficiency of the DRSS estimates with respect to other designs was found to be higher in case of the exponential Pareto distribution (EP).
