An Exponentiated Exponential Weibull Distribution (EEWD) is proposed. Some statistical properties of the proposed distribution are studied. The Maximum Likelihood method (ML) is applied to estimate the model parameters. The efficiency of the ML estimates of the proposed model is demonstrated using a Monte Carlo simulation study with different samples sizes. Moreover, real data set application is provided to show the flexibility of the proposed model in comparison to some selected distributions.
