Proximity of Weighted and Lindley Models with Estimation from Censored Samples
Proximity of the Lindley distribution to the class of increasing failure rate (IFR) and decreasing failure rate (DFR) weighted distributions including transformed distributions with monotone weight functions are obtained. Maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters of the generalized Lindley distribution are presented from samples with type I right, type II doubly and type II progressively censored data. An empirical analysis using published censored data sets are given in which the generalized Lindley distribution fits the data better than other well known and commonly used parametric distributions in survival and reliability analysis
