A finite mixture of the said Burr distribution is proposed to model a heterogeneous population that comprise a finite number of subgroups mixed together in an unknown proportion and with observations that are characterized by one of the one of the finite Burr components provided the data is available on the mixture only. An ordinary type-I right censored sample mixture data is considered. An extensive simulation study is conducted to highlight some interesting properties of the Bayes estimates of the proposed Burr mixture assuming conjugate and uninformative priors. A real life application of the proposed mixture is presented as well.
