The present paper considers a shift-dependent measure of uncertainty and its dynamic (residual) version. Various properties have been discussed. Two classes of lifetime distributions are proposed. Further, when m independent and identically distributed observations are available, an estimator of the measure under study is presented using empirical approach. In addition, large sample properties of the estimator are studied. Finally, an application of the proposed measure to the problem related to right-tail risk measure is presented.
