The Probability Plot Correlation Coefficient Test for Normality

Abstract

This paper introduces the normal probability plot correlation coefficient as a test statistic in complete samples for the composite hypothesis of normality. The proposed test statistic is conceptually simple, is computationally convenient, and is readily extendible to testing non-normal distributional hypotheses. An empirical power study shows that the normal probability plot correlation coefficient compares favorably with 7 other normal test statistics. Percent points are tabulated for n = 3(1)50(5)100.
