SUMMARY This paper is concerned with the X2 goodness-of-fit test when the observed frequencies are supposed to be distributed according to a specified multinomial distribution. We propose a log normal approximation to the distribution of X2. Our results suggest that the approximation is valid providing that the smallest expectation is greater than r/d3/2, where r is the number of expectations less than 5, and d is the number of degrees of freedom.
