1 A goodessoffit test based o the empirical characteristic fuctio ad a compariso of tests for ormality J. Marti va Zyl Departmet of Mathematical Statistics ad Actuarial Sciece, Uiversity of the Free State, South Africa Abstract The ormal distributio has the uique property that the cumulat geeratig fuctio has oly two terms, amely those ivolvig the mea ad the variace. Various tests based o the empirical characteristic fuctio were proposed. I this work a simple ormality test based o the studetized observatios ad the modulus of the empirical characteristic fuctio is show to outperform six of the most recogized test for ormality i large samples. Keywords ormality test, empirical characteristic fuctio, cumulats, goodessoffit 1. Itroductio A goodessoffit test statistic which is a fuctio of the empirical characteristic fuctio (ecf) ad with a asymptotic stadard ormal distributio was derived by Murota ad Takeuchi (1981). They derived a locatio ad scale ivariat test usig 1
2 studetized observatios ad showed that the use of a sigle value whe calculatig the ecf is sufficiet to get good results with respect to power whe testig hypotheses. Murota ad Takeuchi (1981) compared their test agaist a test based o the sample kurtosis, ad coducted a small simulatio study, but did ot compare the performace of their test agaist other tests for ormality. I this work a test is proposed ad the asymptotic distributioal results derived from the results by Murota ad Takeuchi (1981). A simulatio study is coducted to compare the power of this test ad six of the most recogized goodessoffit tests for ormality. The test performs reasoably i small sample, but excellet i large samples with respect to power, ad the test statistic is a simple ormal test which will perform better as the sample icreases. Various overview simulatio studies were coducted to ivestigate the performace of tests for ormality. Oe of the most cited papers is the work by Yap ad Sim (011), but they did ot iclude a goodessoffit test based o the empirical characteristic fuctio. Their work is used as a guidelie to decide which tests to iclude whe lookig at the performace of the test proposed i this work. The tests icluded are the Jarque Bera, ShapiroWilk, Lilliefors, AdersoDarlig ad D Agostio ad Pearso tests. A paper which icluded a very large selectio of tests for ormality is the work by Romao et al. (013), but the test of Murota ad Takeuchi (1981) was ot icluded i this study. Murota ad Takeuchi (1981) proved that the square of the modulus of the empirical characteristic fuctio coverges weakly to a complex Gaussia process where the observatios are stadardized usig affie ivariat estimators of locatio ad scale ad they derived a expressio for the asymptotic variace. Let x,..., 1 x be a i.i.d. sample
3 itx of size, from a distributio F. The characteristic fuctio is E( e ) = φ( t) ad it is estimated by the ecf ˆ 1 itx ( ) j φf t = e, (1) j= 1 The studetized sample is z,..., 1 z, where z ( ˆ ) / ˆ j = x j µ σ, j = 1,...,, with ˆ µ = x ad σ = S. Deote the ecf, based o the stadardized data, by ˆ itz ( ) (1/ ) j φ t = e. ˆ The statistic proposed to test ormality is S j= 1 ν (1) = log( ˆ φ (1)/exp( 1/ ) ), () S where ( ν (1)) N(0,0.0431) asymptotically. I the simulatio study it was foud that the asymptotic ormality approximatio yields good results with respect to power for samples larger tha =50. A motivatio for the ratio form of the statistic ca be give i terms of cumulats. Thus reject ormality if ν (1) / ( / = ν (1) > z 1 α /. (3) The test ca also be writte as, reject ormality if (log( ˆ φ (1) ) ( 1/ )) / = (log( ˆ φ (1) ) + 1/ ) / S > z1 α /. S 3
4 A discussio of some of the tests where the characteristic is used ca be foud i the book by Ushakov (1999). A test based o the ecf which attracted attetio ad yielded good results is the test derived by Epps ad Pulley (1983). This test is based o the expected value of the squared modulus of the differece betwee the ecf ad the theoretical characteristic fuctio uder ormality, with respect to a weight fuctio which has a similar form as a ormal desity. Heze (1990) derived a large sample approximatio for this test, but eve the approximatio is much more complicated tha the test of Murota ad Takeuchi (1981). Methodology.1 Motivatio for the proposed test statistic A motivatio will be give i terms of the cumulat geeratig fuctio. The ormal distributio has the uique property that the cumulat geeratig fuctio caot be a fiiteorder polyomial of degree larger tha two, ad the ormal distributio is the oly distributio for which all cumulats of order larger tha 3 are zero (Cramér 1946, Lukacs 197). The motivatio for the test will be show by usig the momet geeratig fuctio, but experimetatio showed that the use of the characteristic fuctio rather tha the 4
5 momet geeratig fuctio gives much better results whe used to test for ormality. Cosider a radom variable X with distributio F, mea µ ad variace σ. The cumulat geeratig fuctio Κ F ( t ) of F ca be writte as r Κ F ( t) = κ rt / r!, where r= 1 κ r is the rth cumulat. The first two cumulats are κ µ κ σ 1 = E( X ) =, = Var( X ) =. Sice Κ ( t ) is the logarithm of the momet geeratig fuctio, the momet geeratig F fuctio ca be writte as F M ( t) E( e ) e Κ t F tx ( ) = =. It follows that Κ ( t ) = tx F log( E ( e )) = r= 1 κ t r r / r! =( 1 ) r κ t + κ t / + ( κrt / r!) = ( ) r= 3 r µ t + σ t / + ( κ t / r!). r= 3 r Let F N deote a ormal distributio with a mea µ ad variace σ. M N ( ) t deotes the momet geeratig fuctio of the ormal distributio with cumulat geeratig fuctio 1 Κ ( t N ) = µ t + σ t. The logarithm of the ratio of the momet geeratig fuctios of F ad F N is give by log( M ( t)/ M ( t)) = log(exp( Κ ( t) Κ ( t))) F N F N = [( µ t + 1 σ t ) + κ t r / r!] ( µ t + 1 σ t ) r r = 3 = Κ ( t) + κ t r / r! Κ ( t)) N r N r= 3 5
6 r = κrt / r!. (4) r= 3 If F is a ormal distributio, the sum give i (1) is zero. Replacig Κ ( t) Κ ( t) by Κ ( it) Κ ( it) it follows that F N F N log( log( φ ( t)) log( φ ( t)) ) = log( Κ ( it) Κ ( it) ) F N F N 4+ r = κ4+ rt /(4 + r)!, r= 0 which would be equal to zero whe the distributio F is a ormal distributio ad this expressio ca be used to test for ormality. Murota ad Takeuchi (1981) used the fact that the square root of the log of the modulus of the characteristic fuctio of a ormal distributio is liear i terms of t, i other words ( log( φ ( t N ) )) 1/ is a liear fuctio of t.. Asymptotic variace Let ˆ φ ( t ) deote the ecf calculated i the poit t usig studetized ormally NS distributed observatios. A asymptotic variace of ν ( t) = log( ˆ φ ( t) / exp( t / ) ) ca be foud by usig the delta method ad the results of Murota ad Takeuchi (1981). They showed that the process defied by NS Z ɶ t ˆ t t, (5) ( ) = ( φns ( ) exp( )) 6
7 coverges weakly to a zero mea Gaussia process ad variace 4 E( Zɶ ( t)) = 4exp( t )(cosh( t ) 1 t / ). (6) Note that ˆ φ t / NS ( t ) e = ad by applyig the delta method it follows that Var( ˆ φ ( t) ) Var( ˆ φ ( t) )( ˆ φ ( t) ), NS NS NS thus Var( ˆ φ ( t) ) Var( ˆ φ ( t) ) /( ˆ φ ( t) ). NS NS NS By applyig the delta method agai it follows that Var ν t Var ˆ φ t e 1/ ( ( )) = (log( NS ( ) / )) (1/ ˆ φ ( t) ) Var( ˆ φ ( t) ) NS NS = Var( ˆ φ ( t) ) / 4( ˆ φ ( t) ) NS 4 NS 4 = (cosh( t ) 1 t / ) /. (7) The statistic ν ( t ) coverges weakly to a Gaussia distributio with mea zero ad 4 variace Var( ν ( t)) = (cosh( t ) 1 t / ) /, ad Var( ν (1)) = /, t = 1. (8) 7

I the followig figure the average of the log the modulus calculated i the poit, t = 1, usig stadard ormally distributed samples, for various samples sizes is show. The solid lie is where studetized observatios were used ad the dashed lie where the ecf is calculated usig the origial sample.

Simulatio study The paper of Yap ad Sim (011) is used as a guidelie to compare the proposed test agaist other tests for ormality. The proposed test will be deoted by ECFT i the tables. The power of the test will be compared agaist several tests for ormality: The Lilliefors test (LL), Lilliefors (1967) which is a slight modificatio of the KolmogorovSmirov test for where parameters are estimated. The JarqueBera test (JB), Jarque ad Bera (1987), where the skewess ad kurtosis is combied to form a test statistics. 10
11 The ShapiroWilks test (SW), Shapiro ad Wilk (1965). This test makes use of properties of order statistics ad were later developed to be used for large samples too by Roysto (199). The AdersoDarlig test (AD), Aderso ad Darlig. The D Agostio ad Pearso test (DP), D Agostio ad Pearso (1973). This statistic combies the skewess ad kurtosis to check for deviatios from ormality. Samples are geerated from a few symmetric uimodal distributios with sizes = 30,50,100, 50,500, 750,1000. The proportio rejectios are reported based o m=5000 repetitios. The test are coducted at the 5% level ad for the ecf, the ormal approximatio is used. The followig symmetric distributios are cosidered, uiform o the iterval [0,1], the logistic distributio with mea zero the stadard tdistributio ad the Laplace distributio with mea zero ad scale parameter oe. The stadard t distributio with 4, 10 ad 15 degrees of freedom. Skewed distributios ad multimodal distributios would ot be ivestigated, sice i large samples such samples ca be already excluded with certaity as beig ot from a ormal distributio by lookig at the histograms. All the tests performed for the ecf test were coducted usig the ormal approximatio, but percetiles ca also easily be simulated. Simulated estimates of the Type I error for = 30,50,100, 50,500, 750,1000, are give i Table 1 based o m = 5000 simulated samples. The simulated samples are stadard ormally distributed ad studetized to calculate the Type I error. 11

It ca be see the ECFT outperforms the other tests with respect to power i large samples, especially whe testig data from a logistic distributio. Samples were simulated from a mixture of two ormal distributios, with a proportio α from a stadard ormal ad a proportio 1 α from a ormal with variace σ. This ca also be cosidered as a cotamiated distributio. The results are show i Table 4. The proposed test yielded good results. 15

I small samples of say less tha = 50, it was foud that the test of D Agostio ad Pearso (1973) was ofte either the best performig or close to the best performig test. I practice oe would ot test data from a skewed distributio for ormality i large samples. The simple ormal test approximatio will perform better, the larger the 17
18 sample is. The asymptotic ormality ad variace properties, which is of a very simple form, ca be used i large samples. This test ca be recommeded as probably the test of choice i terms of power ad easy of applicatio i large samples. Refereces Aderso, T.W., Darlig, D.W. (1954). A test of goodess of fit. J. Amer.
