In this paper, a discrete analog of the beta-Rayleigh distribution is studied. This new distribution contains the generalized discrete Rayleigh and discrete Rayleigh distributions as special sub-models. Some distributional and moment properties of the new discrete distribution as well as its order statistics are discussed. We will see that the hazard rate function of the new model can be increasing, bathtub-shaped and upside-down bathtub. Estimation of the parameters is illustrated and, finally, the model with a real data set is examined.

Keywords: Discrete Rayleigh distribution, generalized discrete Rayleigh distribution, exponentiated discrete Weibull distribution, hazard rate function.
