The beta Lindley-Poisson (BLP) distribution which is an extension of the Lindley-Poisson Distribution 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 expansion of the density function, hazard rate function, moments and moment generating function, skewness and kurtosis are explored. Renyi entropy and the distribution of the order statistics are given. The maximum likelihood estimation technique is used to estimate the model parameters and finally applications of the model to real data sets are presented for the illustration of the usefulness of the proposed distribution.
