ISSN/ISBN: 1485-6441 DOI: Not available at this time.

Abstract: We show that the full asymptotic distribution for Watson’s UN2 statistic, modified for discrete data, can be computed by standard methods. Previous approximate percentiles for the uniform multinomial case are found to be accurate. More extensive percentiles are presented for this distribution, and for the distribution associated with “Benford’s Law”.
