Abstract:

The distribution of the chi square test under the null hypothesis is studied, when the parameters are estimated by the method of moments. A general formula, applicable also to other situations is given. Three examples are studied in more detail and numerical results are given, indicating how unsafe it can be to use a chi square distribution with a number of degrees of freedom smaller than or equal to the number of cells.
