Abstract

We derive some shrinkage test-estimators and the Bayes estimators for the shape parameter of a Pareto distribution under the general entropy loss (GEL) function. The properties have been studied in terms of relative efficiency. The choices of shrinkage factor are also suggested.

 

Keywords: General entropy loss; Shrinkage factor; Shrinkage test-estimator; Bayes estimator; Relative efficiency.
