  • Abstract

    In this article, we propose a new family of distributions using the T-X family named as modified generalized Marshall-Olkin family of distributions. Comprehensive mathematical and statistical properties of this family of distributions are provided. The model parameters are estimated by maximum likelihood method. The maximum likelihood estimation under Type-II censoring is also discussed. Two lifetime data sets are used to show the suitability and applicability of the new family of distributions. For comparison purposes, different goodness of fit tests are used.
