## Abstract

We introduce a generalization referred to as the Kumaraswamy Power distribution. The proposed model serves as a generalization of the two-parameter Power distribution using the Kumaraswamy Generalized family of distributions. We investigate some of its statistical properties; the Generalized Power distribution, Exponentiated Power distribution and the Power distribution are found to be sub-models of the proposed distribution. The method of maximum likelihood estimation is proposed in estimating the parameters of the model
