gofsimpt {EQUIVNONINF}R Documentation

Establishing goodness of fit of an observed to a fully specified multinomial distribution: test statistic and critical bound

Description

The function computes all quantities required for carrying out the asymptotic test for goodness rather than lack of fit of an observed to a fully specified multinomial distribution derived in Par. 9.1 of Wellek S (2010) Testing statistical hypotheses of equivalence and noninferiority. Second edition.

Usage

gofsimpt(alpha,n,k,eps,x,pio) 

Arguments

alpha

significance level

n

sample size

k

number of categories

eps

margin to the Euclidean distance between the vectors \mathbf{π} and \mathbf{π}_0 of true and hypothesized cell probabilities

x

vector of length k with the observed cell counts as components

pio

prespecified vector of cell probabilities

Value

alpha

significance level

n

sample size

k

number of categories

eps

margin to the Euclidean distance between the vectors \mathbf{π} and \mathbf{π}_0 of true and hypothesized cell probabilities

X(1,K)

observed cell counts

PI0(1,K)

hypothecized cell probabilities

DSQPIH_0

observed value of the squared Euclidean distance

VN_N

square root of the estimated asymtotic variance of √{n}DSQPIH\_0

CRIT

upper critical bound to √{n}DSQPIH\_0

REJ

indicator of a positive [=1] vs negative [=0] rejection decision to be taken with the data under analysis
