Interval estimation for proportional reversed hazard family based on lower record values.

Wang, B.X. and Yu, K. and Coolen, F.P.A. (2015) 'Interval estimation for proportional reversed hazard family based on lower record values.', Statistics & probability letters., 98 . pp. 115-122.


This paper explores confidence intervals for the family of proportional reversed hazard distributions based on lower record values. The confidence intervals are validated as long as the sample is of size n≥3. The proposed procedure can be extended to the family of proportional hazard distributions based on upper record values. Numerical results show that the method is promising.
