    Calibration approach is widely used survey sampling that incorporates auxiliary information to increase the precision of survey estimates. In this manuscript, we propose two new calibration estimators of population mean in stratified sampling, using the known auxiliary information on mean and coefficient of variation in each stratum. A numerical example is presented to illustrate the application and computational details of the proposed calibration estimators. Moreover, a simulation study is carried out to compare the performance of the proposed calibration estimators.
