BAYESIAN ESTIMATION OF SHAPE PARAMETER OF TOPP-LEONE DAGUM DISTRIBUTION
In this paper, Topp-Leone Dagum distribution is considered for Bayesian analysis. The expressions for Bayes estimators of the parameter have been derived under squared error, precautionary, entropy, K-loss, and Al-Bayyati’s loss functions by using quasi and gamma priors.
