In this article, we introduce minimum divergence estimators of parameters of a binary response model when data are subject to false-positive misclassification and obtained using a double-sampling plan. Under this set up, the problem of goodness-of-fit is considered and divergence-based confidence intervals (CIs) for a population proportion parameter are derived. A simulation experiment is carried out to compare the coverage probabilities of the new CIs. An application to real data is also given.
