Abstract

The Kumaraswamy Lindley-Poisson (KLP) distribution which is an extension of the Lindley-Poisson Distribution [21] is introduced and its properties are explored. This new distribution represents a more flexible model for the lifetime data. Some statistical properties of the proposed distribution including the shapes of the density and hazard rate functions are explored. Moments, entropy measures and the distribution of the order statistics are given. The maximum likelihood estimation technique is used to estimate the model parameters and a simulation study is conducted to investigate the performance of the maximum likelihood estimates. Finally some applications of the model with real data sets are presented to illustrate the usefulness of the proposed distribution.
