Abstract

A distribution developed previously (Cook and Johnson 1981) has been generalizedu sing Morgenstern’s distribution to include more useful dependence structures. The new distribution provides better fits to a uranium survey data set. The effectiveness of Atkinson’s (1982) graphical aid for discriminating separate models is also demonstrated in comparing the usual normal model with the new distribution having normal marginal distributions.
