This normality test is described in STAT-18, Appendix C of the book. Figure 1: Returns are stored in a row. The W statistic in this case has the value 0.9430, which is just above the 50 % point of the null distribution.

Also see[R] sktest for the skewness and kurtosis test described byD’Agostino, Belanger, and D’Agostino(1990) with the empirical correction developed byRoyston(1991b). D'Agostino (1970) describes a normality tests based on the skewness and kurtosis coefficients. Because the published critical values for Stephens' statistic only range from 0.01 to 0.15, a sufficiently small P value for the test can only be reported as P<0.01, and a sufficiently large one only as P>0.15. Another way to test for normality is to use the Skewness and Kurtosis Test, which determines whether or not the skewness and kurtosis of a variable is consistent with the normal distribution.

The row marked ALL shows the results for a test that the disturbances in all equations jointly have zero skewness. D'Agostino's K-squared test From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In statistics, D’Agostino’s K2 test, named for Ralph D'Agostino, is a goodness-of-fit measure of departure from normality, that is the test aims to establish whether or not the given sample comes from a normally distributed population. 52, No. var sb_url = "mailto:" + sb_recipient var sb_recipient = sb_user + "@" + sb_domain Emad Abd Elmessih Shehata, 2012. It is a combination of the D’Agostino Z3 Skewness and D’Agostino Z4 Kurtosis tests. Shapiro-Wilk and D'Agostino-Pearson tests. It first computes the skewness and kurtosis to quantify how far the distribution is from Gaussian in terms of asymmetry and shape.
