In this paper, the weighted inverse Weibull (WIW) class of distributions is proposed and studied. This class of distributions contains several models such as: length-biased, hazard and reverse hazard proportional inverse Weibull, proportional inverse Weibull, inverse Weibull, inverse exponential, inverse Rayleigh, and Fr´echet distributions as special cases. Properties of these distributions including the behavior of the hazard function, moments, coefficients of variation, skewness, and kurtosis, R´enyi entropy and Fisher information are presented. Estimates of the model parameters via method of maximum likelihood (ML) are presented. Extensive simulation study is conducted and numerical examples are given.
