In this thesis, we present a new class of distributions called Mc-Dagum distribution. This class of distributions contains several distributions such as beta-Dagum, beta-Burr III, beta-Fisk and Dagum distributions as special cases. The hazard function, reverse hazard function, moments and mean residual life function are obtained. Inequality measures, entropy and Fisher information are presented. Maximum likelihood estimates of the model parameters are given.
