Order preserving estimation is an estimation method that can retain the original order of the population parameters of interest. It is an important tool in many applications such as data visualization. In this paper, we focus on the population mean as our primary estimation function, and propose effective query processing strategy that can preserve the estimated order to be correct with probabilistic guarantees. We define the cost function as the number of samples taken for all the groups, and our goal is to make the sample size as small as possible. We compare our methods with state-of-the-art near-optimal algorithm in the literature, and achieve up to 80%80% reduction in the total sample size.
