In this paper, we make a new optional randomized response technique for estimating prevalence of two sensitive characteristics and their overlap in a population. Unbiased estimators are proposed, their variance expressions are derived and estimators of variances are suggested. A simulation study has been carried out to investigate the performance of the proposed estimators with respect to their competitors.
