Abstract:

Monotone bounds, depending on the underlying multinomial probabilities and the sample size, are given for the chi-squared approximation to the distribution of Pearsons statistic for goodness of fit for simple hypotheses. These bounds apply to the distribution of a single statistic and to the joint distribution of two statistics associated with the margins of a two-way table, in both the central and noncentral cases.
