In this paper, we proposed an estimator of the second-order parameter of randomly truncated Pareto-type distributions data and establish its consistency and asymptotic normality. Moreover, we derive an asymptotically unbiased estimator for the tail index and study its limit distribution. We show, by simulation, that the proposed estimators behave well, in terms of bias, root mean square error and standard error.
