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. R´enyi 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.
