Maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) and quantile estimation [11]. The MLE method for g-and-h distribution is provided by Panjer [15]. It assigns equal weight to all the data used to fit the distribution. In contrast the quantiles estimation method can place more weight on the data in the tails of distribution. It has shown earlier that quantile based methods are more suited for the g-and-h distribution [18]. However, in several instances numerical MLE has been used to estimate the parameters of g-and-h distribution [10].

The Figs. 4 shows the effect of scale and location parameters on the probability distribution functions (PDFs) of lognormal distribution. The location and scale parameters are equivalent to the mean and standard deviation of the logarithm of the random variable Z. In case when g = 0 the Eq. 1) is interpreted as follows [4]: X ¼ A þ BehZ 2 =2 Fig. 2 Definition 35 Fig. 4 The lognormal distribution with the effect of scale parameter The Eq. 4) is referred to as the h-distribution which is shown in Fig.

In this direction we superimpose g-and-h pdfs on histograms of circumference measures (in centimeters) taken from the neck, chest, hip and ankle of n = 252 adult males [7] as shown in Fig. 9. The g-and-h pdfs provide good approximations to the empirical data. In order to fit the g-and-h distributions to data the linear transformation is imposed on qðzÞ : AqðzÞ þ B where A ¼ s=r and B ¼ m À Al [5]. The values of means ðm; lÞ and standard deviations ðs; rÞ for the data and g-and-h pdfs respectively are given in Fig.
