Abstract

In this paper, a new class of generalized distribution called the Kumaraswamy Power Lindley (KPL) distribution is proposed and studied. This class of distributions contains the Kumaraswamy Lindley (KL), exponentiated power Lindley (EPL), power Lindley (PL), generalized or exponentiated Lindley (GL), and Lindley (L) distributions as special cases. Series expansion of the density is obtained. Statistical properties of this class of distributions, including hazard function, reverse hazard function, monotonicity property, shapes, moments, reliability, quantile function, mean deviations, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, entropy and Fisher information are derived. Method of maximum likelihood is used to estimate the parameters of this new class of distributions. Finally, a real data example is discussed to illustrate the applicability of this class of distribution.
