    Brijesh P. Singh, Shweta Dixit and Upasana Shukla

    Abstract: In this paper an attempt has been made to propose an alternative of truncated and intervened Poisson distribution, having two parameters and named as Bounded Poisson (BP) distribution. To estimate the parameters, method of moment and first cell frequency method have been used. To check the suitability of the model it has been applied on real data set used by Dahiya et al. (1973). Proposed model provides a good fitting to the data under consideration.
