Title: New Classes of Discrete Bivariate Distributions
Author(s): XIAO JIANG*
Companies: University of Manchester
Keywords: Chisquare goodness of fit statistic ; Correlation ; Football data

Motivated by Lee and Cha [The American Statistician, 2015, doi:10.1080/00031305.2015.1044564], we introduce eighteen new families of discrete bivariate distributions. We give explicit expressions for their probability mass and cumulative distribution functions. We re-analyze the football data in Lee and Cha (2015) and show that some of the newly proposed distributions provide better fits than the two families proposed by Lee and Cha.
