Main Article Content
Providing extended and generalized distribution is usually precious for many statisticians. A new distribution, called odds generalized exponential-inverse Weibull distribution (OGE-IW) is suggested for modeling lifetime data. Some structural properties of the new distribution are obtained. Three different estimation procedures, namely; maximum likelihood, percentiles and least squares, have been used to estimate the model parameters of subject distribution. The consistency of the parameters of the OGE-IW distribution is demonstrated through a simulation study. A real data application is presented to illustrate the importance of the new distribution compared with some known distributions.
