Abstract

We develop a new class of distributions, namely, the odd power generalized Weibull-G power series (OPGW-GPS) class of distributions. We present some special classes of the proposed distribution. Structural properties, have also been derived. We conducted a simulation study to evaluate the consistency of the maximum likelihood estimates. Moreover, two real data examples on selected data sets, to illustrate the usefulness of the new class of distributions. The proposed model outperforms several non-nested models on selected data sets.
