Bartlett-type Adjustments for Empirical Discrepancy Test Statistics

  • Francesco Bravo

This paper derives two Bartlett-type adjustments that can be used to obtain higher-order improvements to the distribution of the class of empirical discrepancy test statistics recently introduced by Corcoran (1998) as a generalisation of Owen's (1988)empirical likelihood. The corrections are illustrated in the context of the so-called Cressie-Read goodness-of-fit statistic Baggerly, and their effectiveness in finite samples is evaluated using simulations.
