Read (1984) presented an asymptotic expansion for the distribution function of the power divergence statistics whose speed of convergence is dependent on the parameter of the family. Generalizes that result by considering the family of (h, φ)‐divergence measures. Considers two other closer approximations to the exact distribution. Compares these three approximations for the Renyi’s statistic in small samples.
