Abstract

In this paper the nature and behavior of its coefficient of variation, skewness, kurtosis and index of dispersion of Poisson- weighted Lindley distribution (P-WLD), a Poisson mixture of weighted Lindley distribution, have been proposed and the nature and behavior have been explained graphically. Maximum likelihood estimation has been discussed to estimate its parameters. Applications of the proposed distribution have been discussed and its goodness of fit has been compared with Poisson distribution (PD), Poisson-Lindley distribution (PLD), negative binomial distribution (NBD) and generalized Poisson-Lindley distribution (GPLD).
