Abstract

Among probability distributions that are used to describe a chance mechanism whose observational apparatus becomes active only when at least one event occurs is the zero-truncated Poisson distribution (ZTPD). A modified version of the ZTPD, which we call an intervened Poisson distribution (IPD), is discussed in this paper. We give a genesis of IPD and obtain its statistical properties. A numerical example is included to illustrate the results.
