Abstract

Characterization results have great importance in statistics and probability applications. Some characterizations of Pareto of the rst kind and Pareto of the second kind distributions are presented by using conditional expectation in terms of their failure (hazard) rate. We also provide two characterization theorems based on the rth truncated moments.
