- In this paper, the confidence intervals for the generalized gamma distribution parameters are derived based on the Bayesian approach using the informative and non-informative priors and the classical approach, via the Asymptotic Maximum likelihood estimation, based on the generalized order statistics. For measuring the performance of the Bayesian approach comparing to the classical approach, the confidence intervals of the unknown parameters have been studied, via Monte Carlo simulations and some real data. The simulation results indicated that the confidence intervals based on the Bayesian approach compete and outperform those based on the classical approach.
