In this paper, we introduce a new life time distribution . This distribution based on the reciprocal of Generalized Gamma (GG) random variable . This new distribution is called the Inverse Generalized Gamma (IGG) Distribution in which some of the inverse distributions are special cases. The important benefit of this distribution is ability to fit skewed data that cannot be fitted accurately by many other ungeneralized life time distributions. This distribution has many applications in pollution data ,engineering ,Biological fields and reliability. Some theoretical properties of the distribution has been studied such as: moments, mode, median and other properties.
It is concluded that the distribution is skew with heavy tail and the skewness increased when the shape parameters increased but the scale parameter has no effect on the skewness and kurtosis.
