Main Article Content


In this paper, we introduce the Marshall–Olkin Pareto type-I (MOPTI) distribution. Structural properties of the MOPTI distribution including the quantile function, mean residual life, and a new theorem for strength-stress measure are introduced. Five methods of estimation for the MOPTI parameters based on complete samples are presented. Furthermore, we explore the estimation of the MOPTI parameters under type-I and type-II censoring. Two Monte Carlo simulation studies are conducted to evaluate the performance of the estimation methods under complete and censored samples. A real-life data set is used to validate the proposed methods.
