We investigate some properties of the Harris-G class of distributions (Sankhya B 73 (2011) 70–80). We demonstrate that the density function of the Harris-G class can be expressed as a linear combination of density functions of the exponentiated baseline distribution. We provide general formulas for moments (raw, centered, incomplete and factorial), quantile function, generating functions and entropies. Two numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the potentiality of the models in this class. The first one applies the Harris–Burr XII distribution to model bimodal data. The second example uses the Harris-exponential distribution to model SAR image data. The results of the fitted models look promising.
