Bayesian Normal and T-K Approximations for Shape Parameter of Type-I Dagum Distribution

By Hummara Sultan Uzma Jan S.P Ahmad

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jul. 2018

Dagum distribution is a statistical distribution used closely for fitting income and wealth distributions. This distribution has wide application in fields like reliability theory survival analysis, actuarial sciences, and meteorological data. In this article, we obtained Bayes estimators for the shape parameter of Dagum distribution using approximation techniques like normal and T-K approximations. Moreover different informative priors have been considered and a simulation study and three real data sets have been considered to study the efficiency of obtained results.
