Binned goodness-of-fit tests based on the empirical characteristic function
Goodness-of-fit tests based on the empirical characteristic function are studied when data are given in prebinned form. Conditions are obtained under which the limiting distribution of a binned test statistic coincides with that of the corresponding ordinary test statistic. Using a simulation experiment, we demonstrate that binned tests do not essentially lose in power compared with ordinary tests, while at the same time are computationally less demanding.
