Abstract:

The asymptotic non-null distribution is obtained for the modified form of the Pearson chi-square statistic studied by Dahiya and Gurland 1970. By using this result the power is obtained for specific alternative distributions in testing for normality. This enables recommendations to be made as to the number of class intervals to be employed in applying the aforementioned modification of the Pearson chi-square test. Author
