Abstract

It is well known that the sample mean is the estimator of a population mean in mathematical statistics from a given population of interest as a point estimator which assume a single number that is obtained by taking a random sample of a specified size from the entire population, depending on whether the population mean and variance is known or unknown. In the interval estimation, the sample mean is accompanied with a plus or a minus margin of an error that is assumed that the estimator is contained within the range of values with certain degree of confidence. This paper investigated and obtained the interval estimators of the unknown constants of Geeta distribution model through the construction of confidence interval using; the pivotal quantity method, the shortest-length confidence interval, unbiased confidence interval estimators, Bayesian confidence interval estimators and statistical method. Geeta distribution is a new discrete random variable distribution defined over all the positive integers, with two unknown parameters. The properties and characteristics of the Geeta distribution model were discussed and reviewed that is, the existence of the mean, variance, moment generating function and that the sum of all probabilities is unity. These are common properties of any given probability density function.
