Application of the Exponentiated Log-Logistic Weibull Distribution to Censored Data
Keywords:Generalized Distribution, Exponentiated log-logistic Distribution, Weibull Distribution, Survival Analysis.
In a recent paper, a new model called the Exponentiated Log-Logistic Weibull (ELLoGW) distribution with applications to reliability, survival analysis and income data was proposed. In this study, we applied the recently developed ELLoGW model to a wide range of censored data. We found that the ELLoGW distribution is a very competitive model for describing censored observations in life-time reliability problems such as survival analysis. This work shows that in certain cases, the ELLoGW distribution performs better than other parametric model such as the Log-Logistic Weibull, Exponentiated Log-Logistic Exponential, Log-Logistic Exponential distributions and the non-nested Gamma-Dagum (GD).
