Abstract: In this paper, based on a doubly generalized Type II censored sample, the maximum likelihood estimators (MLEs), the approximate MLE and the Bayes estimator for the entropy of the Rayleigh distribution are derived. We compare the entropy estimators’ root mean squared error (RMSE), bias and Kullback–Leibler divergence values. The simulation procedure is repeated 10,000 times for the sample size n = 10, 20, 40 and 100 and various doubly generalized Type II hybrid censoring schemes. Finally, a real data set has been analyzed for illustrative purposes.
