Abstract
We consider testing for an unobservable normal distribution with unspecified mean and variance. It is only possible to observe the counts in groups with boundaries specified before sighting the data. On the basis of a small power study, we recommend the usual X-2 test be used as an omnibus test, augmented by informal examination of the first two non-zero components of X-2. We also recommend use of maximum likelihood and method of moments estimation.
Keywords
power study, FIT, maximum-likelihood estimation, critical values, method of moments estimation, improved grouped normal models
