In this paper we introduce a new distribution for positive and skewed data by combining the Birnbaum-Saunders (BS) distribution and the centred skew-normal distribution. Several of its properties are developed. Our model accommodates both positively and negatively skewed positive data. Also, we show that our model circumvents some problems related to another BS distribution, based on the skew-normal distribution under the direct parameterization, previously presented in the literature. We… CONTINUE READING
