This paper aims to deal with the problem of unbiased estimation of means of two quantitative sensitive variables simultaneously by taking two scrambled randomized responses from a respondent in a sample. Simulation study is done to check the efficiency comparisons of the proposed model with Eichhorn and Hayre (1983) and Ahmed et al. (2018) and found that proposed model is more efficient than both of them in described scenario.
