A new three-parameter size-biased Poisson-Lindley distribution which includes several one parameter and two-parameter size-biased distributions including size-biased geometric distribution (SBGD), size-biased negative binomial distribution (SBNBD), size-biased Poisson-Lindley distribution (SBPLD), size-biased Poisson-Shanker distribution (SBPSD), size-biased two-parameter Poisson-Lindley distribution-1 (SBTPPLD-1), size-biased two-parameter Poisson-Lindley distribution-2(SBTPPLD-2), size-biased quasi PoissonLindley distribution (SBQPLD) and size-biased new quasi Poisson-Lindley distribution (SBNQPLD) for particular cases of parameters has been proposed. Its various statistical properties based on moments including coefficient of variation, skewness, kurtosis and index of dispersion have been studied. Maximum likelihood estimation has been discussed for estimating the parameters of the distribution. Goodness of fit of the proposed distribution has been discussed.
