A Simulation Study of Estimators for the 2-Parameter Weibull Distribution

Seven estimators for the scale (¿) and shape (ß) parameters and percentiles of the Weibull distribution were compared by Monte Carlo methods. The evaluated estimators include the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE), linear estimators, least squares estimators, and a moment estimator. The performance of these estimators with respect to mean square error was… CONTINUE READING
