Abstract

In this paper we obtain the. sampling properties of a scale-free estimator of “redundancyan Information theoretic measure, which is used by economists and communications engineers. We then propose a new test of exponentiality based upon the sample redun-dancy. This test is asymptotically unbiased against a large class of alternatives, and it performs at least as well as a recently proposed test with respect to power and asymptotic relative efficiency. © 1982 by Marcel Dekker, Inc.
