## On the Inverse Burr Distribution: Its Properties and Applications. Journal of the Nigerian Association of Mathematical Physics. Vol. 42, pp. 61 – 66.

This paper presents a discussion on the mathematical properties of the inverse Burr distribution. The application of the distribution was subjected to two lifetime data sets and some measures of goodness-of-fit such as the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC), Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC), and Komolgorov-Smirnov (K-S) test statistics were considered to examine its flexibility in modeling lifetime data and the superiority over other well-known distributions. Results obtained from the two lifetime data sets, reveal that the inverse Burr distribution is an appropriate model in fitting
