Truncated Ram Awadh Distribution: Properties and Applications

Kamlesh Kumar Shukla, Rama Shanker


In this paper, Truncated Ram Awadh distribution, a doubly truncated version of Ram Awadh distribution, has been proposed. Its raw moments and central moments have been given. The behaviors survival function, hazard rate function, mean, variance, coefficient of variation, skewness, kurtosis and index of dispersion for varying values of parameters have been explained graphically. Maximum likelihood method has been used to estimate the parameter of proposed model. Applications of the proposed distribution have been explained with two real lifetime data and the goodness of fit has been compared with several truncated and un-truncated lifetime distributions.
