In this paper, we derive explicit expressions for Bonferroni Curve (BC), Bonferroni index (BI), Lorenz Curve (LC) and Gini index (GI) for the Marshall-Olikn Exponential (MOE) distribution, which have mainly concern with some aspects like poverty, welfare, decomposability, reliability, sampling and inference.We...
