Title variants
Languages of publication
The Dagum (4P) distribution is one of the most popular statistical models in the fields of actuarial science, biological sciences, engineering, finance, hydrology, medical sciences, reliability, transportation, etc. The objective of this paper is to discuss the Dagum (4P) distribution, its various statistical properties, characterizations and applications to some real life data sets, and draw some inferences on it.
