The Beta-Weighted Weibull Distribution: Some Properties and Application to Bladder Cancer Data


Badmus N Idowu, Ikegwu and Emmanuel M

Combination of weighted weibull distribution proposed by Ramadan and beta distribution gives a better distribution (beta-weighted weibull distribution) than each of them individually in terms of the estimate of their characteristics in their parameters. The combination was done by using the logic of beta function by Jones. We investigated in the new proposed beta-weighted weibull distribution some basic properties including moments, moment generating functions, survival rate function, and hazard rate function, skewness, and kurtosis, coefficient of variation, asymptotic behaviors and estimation of parameters. The proposed model is much more flexibility and has better representation of data than weighted weibull distribution. A real data set is used to illustrate the importance the potentiality of the new model.
