Weibull moments are defined generally and then calculated for the 3-parameter Weibull distribution with non-negative location parameter. Sample estimates for these moments are given and used to estimate the parameters. The results of a simulation investigation of the properties of the parameter estimates are discussed briefly. A simple method of deciding whether the location parameter can be considered zero is described
