Four finitesample adjustments to the chisquared statistic are currently available, all of which are described in Shi et al. (2018). These all assume normally distributed data, and may not work well with severely nonnormal data. Deng et al. (2018, section 4) review proposed smallN adjustments that do not assume normality, which rarely show promise, so they are not implemented here. This function currently will apply smallN adjustments to scaled test statistics with a warning that they do not perform well (Deng et al., 2018).
A list
of numeric
vectors: one for the originally
requested statistic(s), along with one per requested smallN.method
.
All include the the (un)adjusted test statistic, its df, and the
p value for the test under the null hypothesis that the model fits
perfectly (or that the 2 models have equivalent fit).
The adjusted chisquared statistic(s) also include(s) the scaling factor
for the smallN adjustment.
