Abstract : A new definition of multivariate hazard rate as a vector is proposed. Some general properties consequent on the new definition are derived. Definition of multivariate increasing (decreasing) hazard rate, IHR (DHR), distributed are proposed on this basis. Specific examples of application of the new definition are given for the cases of multivariate Pareto, multinormal, MorgansternGumbelFarlie distributions. Some numerical values are given for bivariate normal distributions with positive correlation. (Author)
