Abstract

In this paper, for the first time, a new six-parameter class of distributions called weighted Feller-Pareto (WFP) and related family of distributions is proposed. This new class of distributions contains several other Pareto-type distributions such as length-biased (LB) Pareto, weighted Pareto (WP I, II, III, and IV), and Pareto (P I, II, III, and IV) distributions as special cases. The pdf, cdf, hazard and reverse hazard functions, monotonicity properties, moments, entropy measures including Renyi, Shannon and s-entropies are derived.
