The aim of this paper is to estimate the location and the scale parameters of Burr Type XII distribution. For this purpose, different estimation methods, namely, maximum likelihood (ML), modified maximum likelihood (MML), least squares (LS) and method of moments (MM) are used. The performances of these estimation methods are compared via Monte-Carlo simulation study under different sample sizes and parameter settings. At the end of the study, the wind speed data set and the annual flow data sets are analyzed for illustration of the modeling performance of Burr Type XII distribution.
