Heavy-tailed distribution

It is similar in shape to the log-normal distribution but has heavier tails.
Many other heavy-tailed distributions such as the log-logistic and Pareto distribution are, however, also fat-tailed.

Survival analysis

It is used in survival analysis as a parametric model for events whose rate increases initially and decreases later, as, for example, mortality rate from cancer following diagnosis or treatment.

Logistic distribution

Quantile function

The quantile function (inverse cumulative distribution function) is :
The evaluation of quantile functions often involves numerical methods, as the example of the exponential distribution above is one of the few distributions where a closed-form expression can be found (others include the uniform, the Weibull, the Tukey lambda (which includes the logistic) and the log-logistic).

Shifted log-logistic distribution

shifted log-logistic
*The addition of another parameter (a shift parameter) formally results in a shifted log-logistic distribution, but this is usually considered in a different parameterization so that the distribution can be bounded above or bounded below.
The shifted log-logistic distribution can be obtained from the log-logistic distribution by addition of a shift parameter \delta.

Accelerated failure time model

AFT model
The log-logistic distribution can be used as the basis of an accelerated failure time model by allowing \alpha to differ between groups, or more generally by introducing covariates that affect \alpha but not \beta by modelling as a linear function of the covariates.
The log-logistic distribution provides the most commonly used AFT model.

Burr distribution

These include the Burr Type XII distribution (also known as the Singh–Maddala distribution) and the Dagum distribution, both of which include a second shape parameter.
It is also known as the Singh–Maddala distribution and is one of a number of different distributions sometimes called the "generalized log-logistic distribution".

In probability and statistics, the log-logistic distribution (known as the Fisk distribution in economics) is a continuous probability distribution for a non-negative random variable. It has also been used in hydrology to model stream flow and precipitation, in economics as a simple model of the distribution of wealth or income, and in networking to model the transmission times of data considering both the network and the software.
