In this study a new two-parameter estimator which includes the ordinary least squares, the principal components regression (PCR) and the Liu-type estimator is proposed. Conditions for the superiority of this new estimator over the PCR, r-k class estimator and Liu-type estimator are derived. Furthermore the performance of this estimator is compared with the other estimators in different conditions with simulation studies.
