  • A test for goodness of fit usually involves examining a random sample from some unknown distribution in order to test the null hypothesis that the unknown distribution function is in fact a known, specified function. The Chi-square test can be applied to any univariate distribution for which you can calculate the cumulative distribution function. The Chi-square test does not have good properties (power and type I error rate) for small sample sizes. The Kolmogorov-Smirnov goodness-of-fit test… CONTINUE READING
