Probability weighted moments method, introduced and recommend earlier as an alternate method to the classical moments, for fitting statistical distributions to data; is thought to be less affected by sampling variability and be more efficient at producing robust parameter estimates in case of small samples. In this paper, the generalized probability weighted moments method is applied for estimating the parameters of Lomax distribution.
