Attempts have been made to define new classes of distributions that provide more flexibility for modeling data that is skewed in nature. In this work, we propose a new family of distributions namely the Marshall-Olkin Half Logistic-G (MO-HL-G) based on the generator pioneered by [Marshall and Olkin , 1997]. This new family of distributions allows for a flexible fit to real data from several fields, such as engineering, hydrology, and survival analysis. The structural properties of these distributions are studied and its model parameters are obtained through the maximum likelihood method. We finally demonstrate the effectiveness of these models via simulation experiments.
