This paper considers inference under progressive type-II censoring scheme with a compound Rayleigh failure
time distribution. The maximum likelihood (ML) and the Bayes estimators for the two unknown parameters of
the compound Rayleigh distribution (CRD) distribution are derived. A Bayesian approach...

In this paper we derive some general recurrence relations between single and product moments of dual gener-
alized order statistics from a general class of distributions, thus generalizing and unifying the earlier results in
this direction due to several authors.

Correlated or matched data is frequently collected under many study designs in applied sciences
such as the social, behavioral, economic, biological, medical, epidemiologic, health, public
health, and drug developmental sciences in order to have more efficient design and to control for

For analysis of contingency tables with large sample size, classical approaches using approximate methods
have high power. However, when the sample size is small or some cells have frequencies less than 5, classical
approaches are so conservative. Also asymptotic behavior may be poor when the table...

In this paper, the Weibull-X family is proposed and some of its properties are discussed. A member of the
Weibull-X family, the Weibull-logistic distribution, is defined and studied. Various properties of the Weibulllogistic
distribution are obtained. The distribution is found to be unimodal and the...

The Marshall-Olkin extended uniform distribution is introduced and studied by Jose and Krishna (2011). In
this paper some moments properties of generalized order statistics (gos) for this distribution are investigated
and results are deduced for order statistics and record values. In the last section,...

This paper considers the problem of estimating a variable mean for a population of elements where data are only available as aggregate sums for groups of multiple elements. The proposed model addresses an additional complication created when the group measure includes the contribution of diverse elements...

Empirical Bayes approach is an attractive method for estimating hyperparameters in hierarchical models. But,
under the assumption of normality for a multi-level heteroscedastic hierarchical model, which involves several
explanatory variables, the analyst may often wonder whether the shrinkage estimators...

A class of estimator based on dual to ratio and dual to product-type estimator in double sampling for estimating
finite population mean is proposed. The bias and mean square error of the proposed estimator are obtained in two
different cases. A comparative study has been made with usual estimators,...
