We propose a new family of continuous distributions called the odd generalized exponential family, whose hazard rate could be increasing, decreasing, J, reversed-J, bathtub and upside-down bathtub. It includes as a special case the widely known exponentiated-Weibull distribution. We present and discuss three special models in the family. Its density function can be expressed as a mixture of exponentiated densities based on the same baseline distribution. We derive explicit expressions for the… CONTINUE READING
