Beta-Burr Type X Distribution with Application to Luteinizing Hormone Data
Keywords:beta distribution, Burr Type X distribution, maximum likelihood
Beta-Burr Type X distribution is a three parameter distribution and can model right skewed, left skewed, and symmetric data. Beta-Burr Type X distribution is the result of composition distribution functions of beta distribution and Burr Type X distribution. In this study, the characteristics such as probability density function (PDF), cumulative distribution function (CDF), the r-th moment, mean, and variance are presented. The maximum likelihood method is used to estimate the parameters of Beta-Burr Type X distribution, and the solution is obtained using a numerical method. As an illustration, Beta-Burr Type X distribution is used to model the data of luteinizing hormone in female blood samples.
