Length-Biased Weighted Lomax Distribution: Statistical Properties and Application

Keywords

Length biased weighted Lomax distribution, Reliability Ananlysis, Maximum likelihood estimation, Fisher information matrix,AIC, AICC, BIC

Description

The concept of length-biased distribution can be employed in development of proper models for lifetime data. Length-biased distribution is a special case of the more general form known as weighted distribution. In this paper we introduce a new class of length-biased weighted Lomax distribution, (LBWLD). The statistical properties of this distribution are derived and the model parameters are estimated by maximum likelihood estimation and the observed information matrix is determined. An application to real data set is finally presented for illustration.
