The New Weibull-Pareto Distribution

Suleman Nasiru, Albert Luguterah

Abstract


 

A new distribution, the New Weibull-Pareto, is defined and studied. Various properties of the distributions are obtained and the method of maximum likelihood used to estimate the parameters of the distribution. The usefulness of the distribution has also been demonstrated by applying it to real life data.


Keywords


New Weibull-Pareto, Moments, Survival, Hazard, Maximum likelihood estimates.
