Lindley Power Series Distributions
- 50 Downloads
Gui et al. (2017) proposed the Lindley geometric distribution, derived its properties including estimation issues and illustrated a data application. We introduce a new family of distributions containing the Lindley geometric distribution as a particular case. The new family is shown to provide significantly better fits. We also point out errors in various properties derived by Gui et al. (2017).
