ABSTRACT: In the present paper we construct a new three parameter distribution which is obtained by compounding a Consul distribution with Kumaraswamy distribution. The new distribution so obtained is known as Consul Kumaraswamy distribution (CKSD) which can be nested to different compound distributions. Furthermore, some mathematical properties such as factorial moments, mean, variance and coefficient of variation of some compound distributions have also been discussed. The estimation of parameters of the proposed distribution has been obtained via maximum likelihood estimation method. Finally the potentiality of proposed distribution is justified by using it to model the real life data set.
