Generalised Poisson-Modified Mishra distribution

Main Article Content

Binod Kumar Sah, Suresh Kumar Sahani


This distribution is a compound probability distribution constructed by compounding generalised Poisson distribution of Consul and Jain (1973) with Modified Mishra distribution of Sah (2022). All the important characteristics required for this distribution have been obtained and explained. In order to check the validity of the theoretical work, goodness of fit has been applied to some secondary data which have been used by others. It has been observed that this distribution gives a better fit than Poisson-Lindley distribution of Sankaran (1970) as well as Poisson-Modified Mishra distribution of Sah and Sahani (2023).
