The Generalized Odd Gamma-G Family of Distributions: Properties and Applications

Abstract

Recently, new continuous distributions have been proposed to apply in statistical analysis. In this paper, the Generalized Odd Gamma-G distribution is introduced. In particular, G has been considered as the Uniform distribution and some statistical properties such as quantile function, asymptotics, moments, entropy and order statistics have been calculated.
The fitness capability of this model has been investigated  by fitting this model and others based on real data sets. The  parameters of this model are estimated by the maximum likelihood estimation method with simulated  real data in order to test validity of maximum likelihood estimators .
