Abstract Classical tests of goodness of fit aim to validate the conformity of a postulated model to the data under study. Given their inferential nature, they can be considered a crucial step in confirmatory data analysis. In their standard formulation, however, they do not allow exploring how the hypothesized model deviates from the truth nor do they provide any insight into how the rejected model could be improved to better fit the data. The main goal of this work is to establish a…

This article introduces an informative goodness-of-fit (iGOF) approach to study multivariate distributions. Conversely from standard goodness-of-fit tests, when the null model is rejected, iGOF



Quantile Probability and Statistical Data Modeling

Quantile and conditional quantile statistical thinking, as I have innovated it in my research since 1976, is outlined in this comprehensive survey and introductory course in quantile data analysis.

Searches for new astrophysical phenomena often involve several sources of non-random uncertainties which can lead to highly misleading results. Among these, model-uncertainty arising from background

Smoothing the Bootstrap

The question of smoothing when using the non-parametric version of the bootstrap for estimation of population functionals is reconsidered. In general, there is no global preference for procedures

Neyman's test of goodness of fit when the null hypothesis is composite

Abstract 1. The need for a ≫smooth≪ test of goodness of fit has long been felt by statisticians. In response to this J. Neyman (1937) put forward his tests. As he showed, they have many of the

Hospitalization Rates and Characteristics of Patients Hospitalized with Laboratory-Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 — COVID-NET, 14 States, March 1–30, 2020

It is suggested that older adults have elevated rates of COVID-19-associated hospitalization and the majority of persons hospitalized with CO VID-19 have underlying medical conditions, which underscore the importance of preventive measures to protect older adults and persons with underlyingmedical conditions, as well as the general public.
