Non-central distributions form an integral part of statistical inference. For example, the non-central chi-square distribution is particularly useful as it represents the sampling distribution of the sample variance from a normal distribution with unstable expected value. This study develops bivariate non-central distributions via the compounding method. Some composite distributions (such as the product, ratio, and proportion) are derived, their properties studied, and applied to rainfall data.
