Main Article Content
A new six-parameter distribution called the beta generalized inverse Weibull-geometric distribution is proposed. The new distribution is generated from the logit of a beta random variable and includes the generalized inverse Weibull geometric distribution.Various structural properties of the new distribution including explicit expressions for the moments, moment generating function, mean deviation are derived. The estimation of the model parameters is performed by maximum likelihood method.
