An innovative additive randomized response technique (RRT) has been put forth in this study. The proposed models characteristics have been researched. Theoretically, it has been demonstrated that under highly realistic circumstances, the recommended additive model is superior to the existing one. RRTs are used to lessen response biases in sensitive research question self-report surveys (e.g., on socially undesirable characteristics). Evidence suggests that they cannot entirely eradicate self-protective response mechanisms. There are RRTs made especially to assess the effectiveness of such tactics in order to solve this issue. Also provided in support of the current study are numerical examples.
