ABSTRACT

The paper involves a description of simulation experiments aimed at determining the size of Jargue-Bera tests for skewness and kurtosis, as well as selected modifications of those tests. All experiments refer to four different families of probability distributions and consist of one thousand runs each.

KEYWORDS

statistical tests for skewness and kurtosis, the size of a test, simulation experiments
