A new family of distributions, namely the Kumaraswamy Odd Lindley-G distribution is developed. The new density function can be expressed as a linear combination of exponentiated-G densities. Statistical properties of the new family including hazard rate and quantile functions, moments and incomplete moments, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, distribution of order statistics and R´enyi entropy are derived. Some special cases are presented. We conduct some Monte Carlo simulations to examine the consistency of the maximum likelihood estimates. We provide an application of KOL-LLo distribution to a real data set.
